After some review, I believe this anomaly is an optical effect of the instruments that may repeat periodically to varying degrees depending on
For example, a brief search back through 2012 revealed a similar effect to a lesser degree around 3/15/12 near 04:00:00.
Here is an image from 3/15/12, where the effect is much less noticeable but in the same region as the recent anomaly:
When the contrast of the screen capture is increased, it reveals the same "rings" in the same region:
Just for clarity of my speculation:
I cannot say with 100% certainty that this is the same effect, but it looks similar and in all probability is the culprit. It most likely increases
under certain solar conditions. If one were to search through the vast amount of imagery available, perhaps other more pronounced examples could be
