There is also a couple aircraft that have those streaks stemming from them.
As well as other objects all over the world.
I don't know about reflection being the case, as I see this glitch in objects that have no reflective surface.
My opinion, and of reading others: just a rendering glitch, that satellites are known for. There's a lot processes of getting pics of the Earth taken
by a sat, and then getting those pics back to Earth and produced. More processes = more glitches.
Edit to add: Even with a simple SLR camera, glitches just as this can often be seen, I'm sure I have some photo's from my camera days that have this
