I had photos that had much more obvious flaring but I had to dispose them immediately.
By the way, i heard of a star filter...
Does that help in case of reflections from spotlights???
Thanks for the comments
(Yeah will try taking filter off the next time....)
Thanks

You have water droplets on your lens. That's not flare.

as for Star filter, I suggest you try googling "Star Filter" to understand it's purpose.

Just found one. There are others that are worst...

Have you noticed the fine spray of water when walking around there? It's quite obvious under certain wind conditions. This is was is sitting on your lens / filter.
