Analytic expressions are obtained for spin and orbital moments of multidimensional optical solitons - two-dimensional beams and three-dimensional light bullets. It is shown that for given directions of the incidence of light bullets, the time delay in the pulse sequence determines the direction and value of the orbital moment, and can be used as a parameter to control the structure appearing during the mutual capture.
