Definition of: lens flare
Unwanted, excessive light in a photograph due to internal reflections and scattering of light caused by a camera lens with non-uniform optical characteristics. Zoom lenses, which contain several elements, tend to introduce more lens flare due to the many surfaces within the lens. See purple fringing and chromatic aberration.

A book, written by a fellow named Zechariah Stitchin. He associates the name with a rogue planet that passes through our solar system every 3600 years.
According to him however, it's next arrival is far off.
It got tacked on to 2012. A lot of people have been pushing it as arriving since 1995, and have continued the date. When it didn't come in '01, 02, 03, ect. they moved it back to 2012.
