Those spots are not from bubbles--if bubbles cause image defects that severe, then the many thousands of Zeiss, Leica, Angenieux etc lenses that were made with a few bubbles in the glass are horribly defective and no one should buy them. Bubbles used to be considered a sign of quality in glass lenses. They are also not lens flare. If you look carefully, there are two sets of street lights that would not make a reflection across the entirety of the water as most of them do because the bridge would block part of the light. Those two lights line up exactly with the spots.
