    $\begingroup$ Search for Lens Flare like here codeofart.com/flares-wizard you can try ten of them. In general all these lens artefact are done in post proces. Simple one can be done in Compositor with Glare node. Can be done also as set of images rigged in 3D or Eevee use simple Bloom effect. $\endgroup$ – vklidu Jun 22 '20 at 18:24

For simple static lens flare you can try blender Composite nodes:

  • Light source very small Object with high Emission like 1000.
  • Big star is Glare node > Simple Star (Streaks works too, but I could not get them enough long)
  • Central effect is based on Glare node > Ghost Fog "scratched" by Cloud Texture plus Sun Beams node.
