Re: Cool looking lens flare!
In reply to flipster103, Jan 17, 2011

There apparently was a fairly bright street light just outside the frame of your camera. Looks to be a sodium vapor light due to the yellowish color. The light bounced off the lens elements and produced that flair. If you drew a straight line starting from that flair, through the center of the image, it would point directly to the source of that flair.

Other than that, it may be an atmospheric jelly fish alien creature finding a good field in which to make some crop circles.
