What is This? Raw Footage I took with Flip Cam

I was taking some videos in my backyard  last evening between 7:30-7:45 pm.  Altogether I took about 7 clips.  I didn’t use the last two in my project because there was something odd about them.  What the heck is this?  Science is NOT my bag!  I know it was the Summer Solstice yesterday.  Does it have to do with that?  Take a look and tell me what you think.  It happens 39 seconds into the video.

Are you referring to the black dot that appeared inside the bright sun, with that straight bright-light vertical line from the black dot to the ground?

Maybe a camera artifact? Any photography experts out there?

Grannie, I had seen this before and I think it is from artifact, possibly the result of pointing the camera directly at the sun and the light sensor being unable to adjust for the brightness, hope this puts your mind at ease.

I thought it might have something to do with lens flare and I came across that. I took photography in college but that was before digital photography so I guess it has to do with digital cameras.
