Did anyone else notice anything like this in their images at any point during totality or the transition in/out of it?  I'm almost certain it's got to be an internal lens flare.  I haven't tried matching the curvature of the artifact to the limb of the moon yet... that would be something to try.

I guess I answered my own question.  Yes the flare matches the radius of the moon.  Ok.  I have no idea how to determine where in the image the mirror of it is.  Can anyone help?

 

Also, does anyone else have similar images that show the photosphere just beginning to emerge through the low mountain valleys?  I think it's super cool!
