    Hi firren66 and welcome to the Zoo,

    First of always classify the object in the center of the image (even if it is the most boring on) ! 😄
    The object, top left corner is a foreground star from our galaxy. The colors, spikes and weird center are all optical artifacts.

    Happy hunting ! 😄
