I’ve had this before, and also in red (I thought it was a warped galaxy or star, but zooming in showed the same “marker drawn” effect.) Think I’ve seen it in blue too, but don’t hold me to that specific color.

It looks like an angry galaxy sized kid got mad and scribbled on the sky itself lol.

Is this how the colours work? Very interesting - never realised this.
