Welcome! This is a star that is (relatively) close to Earth and is quite bright. As a result the detector has been overexposed (got too much light from) that star, leading to this weird colour and bar through the middle of the star. The 4 “spikes” are also artefacts (not actually there in space) and are called diffraction spikes. Interestingly, you can tell something about the structure of the detector from this shape sometimes.
