    I went out and tried out my new D80 - and 70-300mm Sigma lense. Im a noob, havent done much night stuff, or let alone anything with lot of flashing red lights.

    Can someone please tell me ( im a noob ) what the green dot is in one of the pics, its in a few, but not others, should i be worry about a pixel out? or is a weird reflection - I dont recall a cell phone tower, or anything there, but im gonna go back today and see.

    Please, suggestions, thoughts, advice, comments, all welcome.

    Not sure, I'm new too, but it looks like something we learned about in Physics in High school - the visual spectrum. When the light waves from the lamp post hit the water mist, it creates a specturm and your camera pics it up.

    Proof - take a water hose and spray it at an upward angle into light and take a picture - you should see the spectrum.

    Edit** - Pertains to 2nd picture in the middle and 1st in the sky.

    Looks like there's a house or building behind...it's probably a light in a window.

    Looks like lens flare.

    My 10-20 does that.
