It is a special character which can sometimes be found in Japanesemedia. An example of this would be the mangaらき☆すた (and the animeof the same name).

One reason for its appearance in Japanese media maybe be that it is readily available in Microsoft IME for Japanese. It can be accessed simply by typing "hosi" or "hoshi" (星) which is Japanese for star.

In Japanese it is often called 白星 (shiroboshi) which literally means "white star".
