    Most probably a filter reflection.

    For night shots remove daylight (UV) filters.

    Thanks. I have UV filter on my lenses. Will try it without UV filter.

    Some UV filters cause fewer reflections than others. If that's the problem but you need a UV filter for night shots like these (ie: shooting close to the ocean) you might check out B+W MRC UV filters. I've had good luck with them even with point light sources like those in your photos.

    I took some shots the other day in an area with minimal light using high ISO (1600). I had some internal reflection but I wasn't using a filter. I also had some hot pixels :(
