Question Strange phenomenon in pictures

Recently I bought a Canon Ixus 850 and are very pleased with the camera, but
sometimes strange things appears in the pictures. (See the attached files).
The phenomenon appears only in one out of a number of pictures taken at the same time. Some suggests that it is water that condenses on the sensor, but do you think?
The camera has never been wet or has photographed in rainy weather.
best regards

These are most likely airborne dust, rain, snow, fluff that your flash is picking up. Can be from drinks nearby, babies, old folk, drunk people and a myriad other reasons, including UFOs

Gbee is right I bet. I have seen it a few times myself. Is it only on shots your using your flash on? If so are you using the built in flash?

Its dust...

However, if you wanted to go the more interesting way....you can call it an orb....
Although I have spent a lot of time disproving their existence....

Orbs Debunked!
