    I have been getting these weird turquoise lights or glowing spots I guess (maybe theirs an actual name for these?) in some of my night shot pictures. Is there maybe a problem with the lens, the lighting, or just my own inexperience that is causing this?
    Camera is Nikon D200 with Tamron AF 18-250mm lens.

    That is what it looks like to me too. Try a hood on that lens.

    Looks like lens flare...coming from the windshield of the car, need to get some of the glare off the car.

    On another note, the image is crooked. (kidding, but I'm just not of fan of tilted images)

    Do you have any filter on your lens?
