Why could there be two large temperature anomalies on this infrared map, despite the planet being destroyed, as if it came out the other side?

Most of the map shows temperatures between -260 and -230°F, but there are two distinct areas where the temperature is significantly higher. The first one is to the left of the center, where temperatures reach as high as 2400°F. This is where the planet made impact. After that, there is a small break, where they cool off to about -140°F, before another area where they rise again to 1200°F. What caused the second anomaly?
