Weird orb with three light over Thomasville, NC

On June 6, 2017, a witness was snapping photos of the sun in Thomasville, North Carolina. After seeing it, he noticed a curious and bright orb with three lights. What is it?

Witness statement:

I like to take photos of the sun and I've had lens flares before but this one had me scratching my head. I snapped these and didn't notice anything strange till I looked at the pics indoors when I went to use one for a profile pic on Facebook. I found them interesting and thought I'd get your opinion on rather these are lens flares or not before I jump to conclusions. They were taken on my Galaxy S6. Thank you for your time.
