Reflective orb revealed in digital photo of clouds.

On the evening of July 23rd, I shot a number of cloud formation photos that were backlit by sun filtering through storm clouds. The semi-setting sun was at approximately 30 degrees above the horizon. This shot was taken straight overhead as I stood facing west. Once I downloaded the digital photos, I discovered one showed an orb located in the upper left corner. Unfortunately that area of the picture is blurry; however, the orb definitely shows the reflection of the neighboring clouds. None of the other photos include an object.
