Nice view of Stella Polaris, Polaris or Northern Star.
The surrounding looks like a Chrysanthemum fire work. You don't see it from Earth.

Polaris (α UMi / α Ursae Minoris / Alpha Ursae Minoris), more commonly known as The North Star or simply North Star, is the brightest star in the constellation Ursa Minor. It is very close to the north celestial pole (42′ away as of 2006), making it the current northern pole star.
