I think that the sun is causing a normal lens flare, which happens to be projected back out onto the water.
In effect, a reflection from the camera lens is reflecting off of the water back toward the camera? I don't see how that can happen (angle of incidence and all that).

Hello, I just got a message from Chadwickus asking my opinion about this topic, and if I have seen this before, and indeed I have.
What you are seeing is two reflections. One reflection from the Sun, and one reflection from the water which is reflecting the Sun.
That is exactly what it is.
When that happens, for at least a few weeks, we’d see a second sun, Carter says. There may also be no night during that timeframe.
