I was just taking test-images with my Canon EOS1100D 28.7.17 at 23:35 (+3UCT) and learning how to use it. When looking at pictures I saw what I had accidentally captured on film. These wasnt seen with bare eyes.

It looks like a lens flare.

Well, I could think so too if those wouldnt have been moving and changing and these were in all pictures. But
My camera was still and I continuously just took pictures. I took pictures about an hour (bout 300 pics) and these were shown in about 10 minute time-period. So lensflare should have been in all of them. Even though I am a rookie (as taking pictures -not in these space- subjects) I have no doubt about that these are lensflares.
I took better cam in use because there were NCLs just night before (which are also in my files, just taken with iPhone5S), and I wanted to be ready for more NCLs. At this day when pics we taken there was G and S storm at hand and expected ionization on the air.
I can look the information about the photos -if it gives more info?
These is just copied from my FB and added so the photo-info isnt shown.

How come? If they are lensflares could you explain from where (and between what excactly) are they reflecting light? And why those blue ones are formed like they are? And how is that sphere-like one (or timeglass-shape) formed? You got me. How can these be lensflares when there is non in other pictures? What has changed in surrounding lights so they are formed like this (or even there)?
It looks more so that the images are taken from lensflares, bc they arent towards camera? If you may explain Id be glad. Thank you!

Sure! You can see in all 4 photos, the lens flare reflections are reflecting from the same light in the lower portion of the frame. Starting at the left, and ending up in the lower center portion of the 4th frame. The lens flare is identical in all 4 photos, from this same light. It shifts position because the reflection is an inversion or 180 of the bright light. The different colors are from coatings on your lens elements themselves, and the different shapes can be explained by the shapes of the glass elements inside your lens.
