I have been into astronomy for the past 22 years. What i can tell you is, in tha video, it is NOT mercury or venus. It loks superimposed, or a lens
flare. At msot realisticaly speaking, its an atmospheric reflection from the sun, thats all. Personally, i think its a reflection forminside the
room.Looks to much like a light bulb.
Mercury, is not easily visiable fomrt he norhter hemipshere, because it never gets hihg enough in the sky. Someone with 20/20 vision, would have
a tough time locating it. WHen you get to about mid to south Florida, the elliptic(the plane of view from earth, the planets follow through the sky)
is higher up. Anywhere north of Florida, and MErcury gets closer and closer to the Horizon, making it dimly visible. In Flroida, and south fo their,
Mercury would be much higher in the sky.
As for that object in in the SOHO image, DEF aint a comet, comets that sloe to the sun woudl DEF extend a tail hundreds of millions of miles into
space, and it is not mercury either. Mercruy and venus from earth orbit, would be undetectable with eyes or telescope, becuase they thiers nothing to
greatly reflect them... on earth we see them, becuase of water in our atmosphere... put a straw in a glass of water...the straw looks bigger than it
really is..same principle applies to our atmosphere.
Whatever that big white light at right hand screen is, is closeer to us, than the sun... and BIG. UFO? Could be... refelction off another earh
orbiting satellite? could be, bu unlikely/
