    I haven't been able to repro this, although I have seen it before (releases ago) when my video drivers were out of date. Yours may be up to date but I wasn't sure :)
    If you see this a lot, I'd like to go through some troubleshooting to see where we can pinpoint the issue. Others have seen this as well. What video settings to you play at in-game? It's really something I haven't seen in a good six months or so and I'm regularly in scenes at night like this...

    Hi, @Lexie

    I checked last night and my video drivers are up to date. My video setting is on Fastest and shadow distance is None.

    Also, as of now, I haven't seen this anywhere else except in Ardoris.

    My graphics drivers are also up to date. Running on auto (medium settings) and I have these as well. They don't stick around for long though.
