That has existed since the Beta, maybe the Alpha. All "clouds" of all kinds have that happen at times. I reported it long ago. The response claimed it is problem with my video card or driver or something like that. It wasn't and isn't. I get it in a lot of the games I play, but I play on some of the larger galaxies.
The invisible object will become visible eventually.
This also happens to the blue-grey dots that represent stars that you haven't traveled to. Don't be surprised if you happen to find a planet or asteroid field out in "empty" space with no star around. The star is there. It just isn't visible. Move to where your ship can see it and it will appear.
The games knows the invisible objects are there and will route your ship around them. If you get a strange path for your ship's movement, that is a clue that there is something invisible in the way.
