Narrative:The student pilot reported that the final approach was normal until he began the flare, when the morning sun momentarily restricted his vision. His vision cleared but he was surprised by early contact with the runway. The airplane bounced and the pilot attempted to maintain control without adding power. The pilot regained control after the subsequent bounce and taxied off the runway. After taxing clear of the runway the pilot noticed the prop had struck the ground. Subsequent inspection revealed that the firewall was damaged.
