Reflection of the eclipse

look at the blob of light in lower left, its a reflection of the eclipse
During the eclipse I figured pointing at the sun, without a special filter, would just give me lens flare, and it did!

BUT look down at the reflection diagonally to the left and down. Its the moon covering the sun in the fairly normal position for the bright dots of light that accompany lens flare. It is however a nice sharp reflection of the eclipse, as the moon partially covers the sun (I have no idea how I managed to capture this)
