Well I am not sure what I captured but I decided to take a picture of the sun today because it seemed diffrent then most days, more like a white light rather than the usual golden color. Anyways when I view this picture I noticed in the top left hand side of this picture is an orange orb of some type. Is this the comet or something else?

Any and all help would be appreciated.

view pic here.

im no expert but id guess its lens flare.

Also, different cloud formations can play tricks... however, i do think the sun is more... er... hazy these days and ive often wondered if its down to pollution... nice photo m8

No thats not the comet dude sorry.

Suns too high for it to be seen. The sun has to be below the horizon for you to see it at all, and with binos you get to see a cool tail as well.

Be warned, the comet is now only 5 degrees from the sun, so viewing is hazardous.

But well worth a look once the sun has gone down!

I am going to say that IMHO: It’s a “Sun Dog”.

You can see comet McNaught's images in near real-time at SOHO's site:
Look under Lasco's C3 images here

Recent C3 example:

Vivid orange/red comet indicating a ferrous composition:

The comet made its perihelion today, so it doesn't look like it will break up or get any brighter.

These pictures (the picture like you took) are up at Zetatalk all the time.
Nancy Lieder believes this is Planet X.
