Lunastra was made available in Monster Hunter World as part of update 4.0, and is the third monster obtained via DLC. You can only find it after installing the patch, which will make it appear among the optional missions in the Special Assignments menu, the Special Missions.

Step 1. Lunastra only appears on the map after finishing the chase to Xeno'jiiva, the final mission of the main story, then play Monster Hunter World in a very linear way and finish the game before anything else.

Take advantage of the hunts of the campaign to raise your hunter rank, because you will also have to reach at least Hunter Rank 16 to obtain the Lunastra mission, which does not appear for inferior ranks;

Step 2. With the game finished and already in the hunter rank 16, talk to The Huntsman, the hunter in Astera indicated in the image below, to receive the special mission The Blazing Sun.

It consists of hunting the Teostra monster in the Wildspire Waste region, then travel there and kill the beast, then return to Astera and talk to The Huntsman again;

Step 3. Upon completing the mission, The Huntsman will initiate a new dialogue and ask you to go to the forge. Talk to the Second Fleet Master (second fleet master) in the Astera store to receive the Pandora's Arena mission.

Monster Hunter World: You have to fight twice with Lunastra

This is not yet the main hunt, and you only have to deal enough damage to Lunastra in the Arena to fulfill the mission, so take advantage of the monster's moves in this "warming" battle;

Step 4. After that, speak again with The Huntsman in Astera to receive the Special Mission On Remorse, No Surreder (no remorse, no surrender), in which you must hunt both Lunastra and Teestra in Elder's Recess.

Step 5. Lunastra causes fire damage and even so it is also immune to elemental fire damage. Their weakness is Ice or Dragon attacks, with moderate vulnerability to stunning and explosions.

Take care, because the high temperature of your body drains the energy of your hero. To get around this problem, make sure you have a Cool Drink in your inventory, and drink when you hunt Lunastra;

Step 6. Lunastra, like Teostra, presents its greatest risk when it launches the Supernova attack in a furious state. When you notice the attack being charged, run away and stay at a safe distance until the end of the animation.

You also have to be careful with the blue flames Lunastra spreads across the floor. After getting accustomed to your attack patterns, break off the weak spots on your head, wings and tail, areas where he suffers the most damage from the attacks.
