Lightning photographs produce crazy lens flares with Slow Shutter Cam app for iPhone

I'm not sure if it's because the lightning was so bright, or because I was shooting through the side window of my car, but the lightning is creating some pretty epic lens flares in this photo!

I was using Slow Shutter Cam app for iPhone in Light Trail mode with a light sensitivity of 1.

I was driving home from Indiana on Saturday when I saw some huge lightning bolts streaking through the sky in front of my car. It wasn't raining yet, so I thought it would be a good time to try photographing lightning with my iPhone for the first time.

I pulled off the highway and stopped in a church parking lot. I pressed my camera up against the drive side window and started taking light trail pictures with the app.

Not as impressive as other photos of lightning I've seen with an iPhone, but not bad for shooting through a window during daylight. I also think the lens flares add something cool to the photos even though it's basically just a glare caused by the window of my car.
