Yup. Human brains are good at visual pattern matching. To me it looks like the shape of the solar wind colored by magnetic field polarity as it expands out into the heliosphere (example: http://www.ips.gov.au/Images/Solar/Solar%20Conditions/Solar%20Wind%20Speed/solarwindmodel.jpg)
It looks like a Catherine Wheel, used to let these off on Nov 5th Guy Fawkes night in England every year when I was a kid. A bonfire was de rigueur too.
