Partial Solar Eclipse, in Reflection

A partial solar eclipse was captured with a mobile phone camera (iPhone 11) on 25 October 2022 in Utrecht, Netherlands. The camera didn't facilitate exposure time and stop to prevent saturation. Instead, the eclipsed sun appears as a reflection feature from the camera optics. Imaging in reflection off another dark mobile phone screen in order to check for additional attenuation caused colorful diffraction.
