    Polar ring was my first thought, but vrooje (scienceteam) pointed out that the spikes are at exactly the same angle as the ones from a star

    So they are probably diffractionspikes because of the very bright center.
    Looks really cool though !

    Could it be jets? Could be a coincidence that they're at same angle as star's diffraction spikes, they are at 90 degrees from galaxy plane

    Jets was my first thought, but I can't say for certain.

    If you look through the comments below, it is suggested that these are diffraction spikes (artifacts) caused by the brightness of the center
