Tonight's launch of the Solar Orbiter spacecraft for ESA and NASA on the top of the ULA Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Fore Station. Seen from Cocoa Village shoreline on the Indian River, about 18 miles away . . .

Nice shot. It's (artifacts) not just next to the flightpath (lightpath?) I see it all over the sky.
It's posterization. Image as displayed on POTN is only 96kB.
Do you know what size it was as uploaded, before POTN compressed it?
Nothing wrong with your photo, it's compression and conversion to 8 bit causing the problem.
