Hi

What is this effect that I am seeing? Should it be classified as optical effect?

Hi Muhammad,
Yes, this is a great example of an optical effect. It happens when a bright planet, in this case Venus, comes into the camera's field of view causing optical flares and the vertical saturation spikes you can see here.There is a list of odd things you might come across and how to classify them in this thread.

I was wondering what that was as well!
