I believe these are lens flares. Since some appear to be a
classic UFO/saucer - I guess one can say they are an example of
Pareidolia - see:

discussed here in past UFO UpDates.

During 2010, one of my group's investigators and I checked out a
whole bunch of GoogleEarth Streetview images and found many
similar saucers and domes.

They're always light-colored though the color did vary, and
could usually be correlated with the position of the sun.

I've seen that color shown in the photo. I saw some from my own
home street in several nearby shots but, crucially, with the
views facing slightly different directions, so that an actual
object being responsible was extremely unlikely, since the shots
appear to be taken in sequence just seconds - or at most tens of
seconds - apart.

My understanding is they are caused by the camera dome through
which a roof-mounted camera is shooting, as Steven Kaeser wrote
earlier.

Naturally, our investigator first found these things when
looking for a useful ground-level view of a spot where a UFO
sighting had occurred!
