    solar flotsam

    The sky was cloudless and the sun shone brightly, its light sparking on the water's surface like solar flotsam.
    What does solar flotsam means??

    Do you know what the two words mean individually?

    Re: solar flotsam

    As I know, solar means the sun and flotsam is something that floats on the water.
    But I don't think it means the sun float on the water. Does it mean the reflect of the sun on the water surface?

    Yes — the reflection of the sun on the water.
