ghosting - lens or filter flare? Could be all the above in various combinations. Dark scenes with bright lights cause all kinds of reflections to bounce around inside the lens.

Might be your filter is the major culprit but not necessarily as the lens itself could also be the main source of the problem. Just have to try with and without filter.

Remember the inside of your lens is loaded with multiple pieces of glass all with two sides that can cause reflections egtc.

In short...Yes!   Filter reflection is my guess, presumably reflecting off the lens and bouncing back off the filter.  Removing and shooting without it is the easiest way to know for sure.
