I took this picture just a second ago from my mobile phone. This is not doctored at all, before you immediately go to glare or lenses problems I saw something before I took the picture. I looked up at the sun, which was entirely too bright to see alot, but when I took that first glance I could see the roundness of the sun, and another ball next to it. then the brightness hit me and I got all watery and out of focus. If my location matters to others who wanna LOOK UP RIGHT NOW I live in Denham Springs, Louisiana.

Flare. Try taking multiple pictures while ever so slightly moving your phone into different positions. I guarantee you will see the flare move around. I have plenty examples of this and can reproduce it if you want.

Put down your mobile phone and pick up a welding mask.



Be a true sun explorer... And get bored.... very fast.

By the way, there is an object next to the sun right now from the area you are from. It's Jupiter.

ya i agree with sub pop! kinda like a sun dawg,but not really.
remember,venus is passing in front of the sun on june 5th. hopefully it won't be cloudy! that would be a good oppertunity for a photo op.

the op was correct,do not look into the sun,get welder's goggles!!!

Sorry to say OP but it is a lense flare.

Best proven way is to look close to sunrise or sunset, the Sun's brightness will overwhelm all other objects in the middle of the day, and use the red sheet from an old floppy disk.

Sorry, bro. I know things like that can be exciting, but if you didn't see it, and your camera did, it is almost always a result of the camera's normal activities.

I am going to make a thread today about "these objects next to the sun." I think I can clear some things up, being an amateur photographer. I'll upload multiple images from my phone as well as from my Nikon D40X. I will also use various lens filters (UV, Circular Polarizing, and Infrared) to show how many you can create and how intense they can be. With the right angle, the IR filter can produce 6 of them, all various colors and sizes.

I don't see any objects in OP picture. I just see normal lens flare.

Warning!!!!!
I wouldn't recommend looking through welding goggles to look at the sun for more than a second or two-They can have tiny pixel sized flaws in the lenses which allow sunlight to burn out tiny parts of your retina-But without you noticing at the time.

That can cause irreparable damage to your vision.

If you want to look directly at the sun,use a proper telescope solar filter-they have much higher standards and will not cause eye damage,as they are made for the job of looking at the sun.

Just saying.

Do you have more than one pic? I live in Louisiana, and went out to take a few, and here is what I got. Though I could see the sun perfectly, every time i took a pic it looked like this I don't have a good camera....No matter how hard I tried to get a clear pic, it came out all distorted....sorry. I'm sure it's some kind of lens flare...You'll have to scroll to the right to see the whole pic. The sun is the big blurry object (I made sure it was aimed right at the Sun, so that big blurry thing is it LOL), not the little bright object which is flare.
ETA date is wrong....I just took this a few minutes ago.

Just out of curiousity....anyone know why my Sun pics look like a big cloud? As you can see the sky is blue, and I could see the Sun perfectly. Why did my pics of it make the Sun look like a swirly cloud?
Just a bad camera?
