Parabolic Sun Shield or Cosmic Ray Shield Seen in Space?

Recently, someone posted a link to the following youtube news item which shows an image of a large shield-like structure supported by struts extending from some object positioned near its focus:

If this shield is as far away as Venus, it would be huge.  Most likely it is much closer to us.  It is a puzzle what the thing is.

 

It appears that the above youtube link was in error in assuming this to be a real phenomenon.  It appears just to be a telescope lens flare.  See the following link sent bin a comment from Patricia:   http://youtu.be/gRM2ns1LM-c.
