That would be my initial guess as well.  I've seen similar stuff
at the Burning Man Festival.  I don't think it a hoax of the
cameraman, just a prosaic, human-made group of lights seen at
night, therefore the cameraman was unable to see such things as
a balloon that is suspending it.

I'm bothered by the lack of motion of the lights relative to one
another which instead remain in relatively fixed positions.
I've seen much more puzzling "mothership" videos with satellite
objects actually "swarming" about or seemingly being ejected out
of the main body, but not here.
