In the 'hood.

Any UWA directly shot into the sun will get you this effect. It's called lens flare. Buy a lens hood.

A lens hood does not do anything useful if the sun is in the frame like the OP and my not shown efforts. But anyone is slightly mad anyway to not use lens hoods for other reasons, like out of frame bright light interfering and for mechanical protection of the lens.
