Secondary Sun?

Took this photo last week while in Kota Kinabalu.
Just realised that there appears to be a 'secondary sun' to the right of the setting sun.



I am puzzled as to what causes this.

Anyone can enlighten me please?

* I am pretty sure there was only 1 sun in the sky that evening*

Congratulation ! You've just found a new sun ! Call US Space Center now, they might just name that sun after you.

That was my first thought.

But from my observations, the moon rises from the east , while the sun sets in the west. Since both the 'suns' are on the same horizon, ...probably not?

I suspect it's some kind of reflection....

Well, you could be seeing a planet. Apparently Venus can be spotted near sunset or sunrise

Whether it is that big or not, that I am not sure.
