A photograph of the sun is being compared with ancient images going back thousands of years. The so-called "Winged Disc" has made its way from Middle Eastern religions to corporate logos such as Chrysler. These are ancient symbols of power, which cross many cultures, from ancient Egyptian, to modern electoral politics and campaigns.
The alleged appearance of this sun symbol in the sky are shaking all kinds of lunatics, theorists, and doom mongers from the shadows, Are they right? Is this real? Does it have a connection with the great bird, fish and bat die off? The answer could lie in
Is this "halo" magnetic, does it interfere with biological processes on Earth? Could it be the source of a magnetic disruption which destroyed or altered the navigational abilities of the now dead birds, bats, and fish?
22º radius halos are visible all over the world and throughout the year. Look out for them (eye care!) whenever the sky is wisped or hazed with thin cirrus clouds. These clouds are cold and contain ice crystals in even the hottest climes.
The halo is large. Stretch out the fingers of your hand at arms length. The tips of the thumb and little finger then subtend roughly 20°. Place your thumb over the the sun and the halo will be near the little finger tip.
The halo is always the same diameter regardless of its position in the sky. Sometimes only parts of the complete circle are visible.

If that little glowing dot is an accurate representation of what can be seen in the sky at some place on Earth, then we're going to have to start seriously consider the binary theory of our solar system.
"Planet X" was originally postulated because gravity perturbations in the outer planets led to the discoveries of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. But Pluto wasn't big enough to explain the perturbations, so it was assumed a larger body was further out with a much greater gravitational effect.
Then other scientists have argued, with data that seemed convincing at least when I first read of it, that instead of another planet being out there, our Sun could just have a dark companion star on a highly eccentric orbit. Apparently there is a type of old star that no longer produces the same kind of light as the Sun, and is very dense and mainly just gives off heat radiation that can be detected in space.
Some ancient cultures called that winged disc "the destroyer."
