Star with multiple objects or afterimage surrounding it

https://decaps.legacysurvey.org//viewer/?ra=150.7494&dec=-57.6571&layer=decaps2&zoom=15

I was wondering what object this is? Is this just some kind of image glitch?

Hi KFC,

Yes indeed you can call it that, the object (probably a Milky Way star Iā€™m guessing) was a bit too bright causing these optical effects

Hope this helps
