1 You background image.
2 Create a new layer, fill it with black.
3 Place a lens flare in the center of the image.
4 Adjust the Hue Saturation Brightness to your liking.
5 Duplicate the layer, set the HSB to something around blue/red.
6 Transform the layer into a really long, squished band.
7 Set both layers to Screen and Viola!
