Hi jaredddd,
You might want to look at the pictures here, they cover most all of the strange sights visible in the videos, and if you want more information on what causes them, you can generally click their name to see a post describing them. 
Your bright spots are in fact planets, they tend to 'explode' with optical effects when they get to the edge of the frame, it's just an optical effect, light bouncing around in the optics.  More information on all the planets visible in the HI cameras here.

Your link is a general one and links to a new spot video each time!! Hopefully you saved your video in favourites jaredddd. ;) Just follow the instructions here and we will be able to see the one you are referring to. And let us know how many seconds into the video the feature is. :)

Hi Jules. Is there any way to retrieve the video that jareddd originally referred to and that I commented on (however, now I realize they may not have been the same vid).  I think the CME that I saw at 3:30 would have been a contender for Chris' World Cup look-alike.

It would have been a different vid unfortunately so unless jareddd's vid is in favourites - then no.
(But thanks for the tip off....!! ::) :P )

Hi all,
Newbie here. Is this what is called a "planet loop"? Starts around the 3 second mark. I'd love to hear the background behind it.

Indeed it is - and a very fine example of one too. There are more optical effects listed here. Just click on the orange text for more info. Welcome to solar stormwatch - glad you found us! :)
