Okay so let me start by saying these are completely rubbish photos taken with my gf's iPhone 6... She's adamant it's a reflection but can't seem to work out from where as the phone is directly pointed at the moon and there's nothing that bounces, refracts or mirrors the lens...?

ETA: Ok thanks to Milah I've worked this out now. Please see images below.

The lens itself. Light passes through the lens to the sensor, bounces off the sensor back to the lens, then back to the sensor. You are seeing an internal reflection of the Moon.

I have figured it out & posted the photo(s) now.

I've also seen that it still appears (much darker) in her other photos since the eclipse began

There's no light that can be causing this though unless you mean from the moon itself.

In any case thanks for the explanation and they're pretty sweet photos though 👍🏼

Yes it's another image of the Moon and it's fainter your iphone has worked out an exposure based on the background so the Moon is over exposed, the flare image of the Moon is closer to the correct exposure as it's fainter.

Here is a good example Moon lens Flare

I was also taking pictures an hour ago..I took about 4 pics but two of them have these huge bubbles at least 3 bubbles. I used no flash an the moon is a red dot. Anyone really know what it could be..I don't think it's a reflection since only 2 of the pics came out with these bubbled. If they are orbs I've never seen anything that big.

It depends where in the frame the Moon is located. With the Moon very close to the center of the frame, the reflection will not appear.

No reason there can't be multiple internal reflections. Or maybe there were invisible bubbles that only your camera could see.

Come on dude. Lens flares happen all the time, you know they exist and surely know they all depend on the position of the light source.

"Orbs" on the other hand do not exist , other than in the minds of people who somehow have gone through life without ever seeing anything small and bright and out of focus.
How are you even questioning this.

And Phages explanation of the internal reflections in a lens/camera was spot on. Maybe maybe one day he will let someone else explain something though?

just kidding Phage
