Definitely difficult to make anything out with a image that is so obviously blasted out, filled with CCD white out and lens flares.
People can believe what they like, we watch the sun very closely, there are satellites and telescopes trained on the thing 24/7 if there is a planet
within the orbit of mercury, we would have spotted it by now... there are indeed a couple of objects that have been spotted... all tiny however.
has a nice image of exactly how many minor planet/ groups of objects there are out there in the solar system... its not tidy thats for sure.
BTW, next time you wanna take a picture of the sun through a phone camera or something similar, get a wrapper from a packet of crisps (chips for the
us), the silver foil like, and take an image through it... it is basically the same material as a solar filter (you will want maybe a few good layers
of it, and dont look through it, i aint taking any responsibility for damage to your eyes, or your camera...
If anyone is really interested in it, they should get a telescope, some nice filters, a T-Mount for a DSLR and get some pictures taken every day for a
year... get some orbital information and quite seriously prove and publish your results... you would be considered an astronomical hero.
Of course this is unlikely to happen because people interested in doing this would (if the stereotype and what i read on ATS would have it) be
killed/arrested/silenced by some dark shadowy organization.
My opinion... all of these are actually a combination of lens flare, dust or ghost reflections. My credentials? Hobbyist Photographer who has taken
images close to the sun and other bright light sources... you can see ghosting effects in all lenses under special circumstances..... it is an
amazingly well designed lens that doesn't suffer these effects. And those things are rare
