Greenish Orb Near the Sun

My family and I were driving off of the highway for gas, when I thought I would take a picture of the area. Right before I took the picture, I was only aware of seeing the sun in the sky, but when I checked the photo there was this perfectly round greenish orb southeast of the sun. This was taken through the back window of the car using the camera on my Samsung S4 phone.

There was no flash used. I know it wasn't the moon because it was on May 13th a few days after the full moon which still would have been almost on the opposite side of the sun. Could possibly be a reflection off of an aircraft at just the right moment, but I am not sure. I will send the picture.
