I suppose that you could do this - actually, I know how to do it myself - but unless the problem is especially hard to diagnose, just looking for the dust visually seems easier and more straightforward to me.

Sure that you are not having that problem anymore, but that is definitely not sensor dust. Dust on the sensor typically shows only when you zoom in and is always more defined than that. Pixels are actually blocked by dust, so they don't absorb light at all. Instead you get small blurry black spots. Your image is showing light flaring around something that is far enough from the pixels to be less defined.
Without looking at your gear I would almost guess water drops on the front of your lens, but that seems like something you would have noticed. Maybe a dirty rear element of the lens.
