Brown Mountain Lights captured on camera

Mysterious lights that have been reported over Brown Mountain for decades were recently caught on video.
Often observed from the Blue Ridge Parkway, the unexplained lights spotted around Brown Mountain in North Carolina have remained a mystery for over 100 years.

The lights have been sighted so many times in fact that it is almost certain that they exist, however researchers have long struggled to agree on what is responsible for producing them.
While some people have claimed that the lights are evidence of extraterrestrial visitors, scientists remain unconvinced and instead favor natural or meteorological explanations.

This latest footage of the phenomenon was captured on camera by Appalachian State University physicist Daniel Caton and his team after several years of failed attempts.

The lights are visible between 0:52 and 01:02 in the video below.

Nothing faint about fireflies in the dark. May is breeding season pretty much for most of the types, if not all.

I've seen the Marfa lights. Totally different experience. They slowly wink on, stay lit for about 30 seconds, then fade out. Sometimes they split in two before going out, one at a time. Really cool.

I watched this a couple times and didn't see anything unusual. Bugs, car headlights (lower left), city lights in the distance, etc. What am I missing?

The video does not appear to report what are commonly known as Brown Mountain lights.  https://skeptoid.com/episodes/4226 I suspect they are insects, possibly illuminated by an IR source.

They look like rods to me (flying insects phenomenon) But I did see something strange on the right side of the screen between 0:37-0:40 of the video.
