Location of Sighting: Orem, Utah
Date of Sighting: September 7, 2019
Time of Sighting: 9:10 AM MDT
Description: I was just taking a photo of the mountains and I noticed the dots and shadows in the 3 photos. I didn’t see them before or after taking the photos. I noticed them only in the photos. In fact I looked after the second photo and I didn’t see anything. Then I took the third photo and they were there and had moved. Is this some sort of light reflection?Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.

“Is this some sort of light reflection?”
Yes, anytime the sun is directly in your camera’s field of view, you’re going to have internal optical effects, as demonstrated in the photo.
It looks like a lens flare to me.
I categorized this sighting as a lens flare or reflection.
