VERY Interesting Video from Puerto Rico today. Really DOES look like 2 Suns!

Most likely lens flare, as a "second sun" will certainly not appears in front of the pipe's shadows.....:




38"


A lense flare moves with the camera, this is known as common sense. In this video, that smaller apparent object is stationed independently of the movement of the camera, thus it is not a "camera glitch." It is either an atmospheric effect or an actual object.

Your inability to read what I wrote kinda bothers me. I said "a second sun this close"...meaning a star close enough to appear as big as the one in many of the videos. This could be something the size of Jupiter close to the Earth or something the size of Eta Carinae somewhere out in the Oort cloud. Either way, it's gravity would severely disturb the other planets.

Here you can see the reflection overlapping the hose reflection when it shouldn't. This must be an anomaly within the camera lens

Nice call, I had to put my nose to the screen to catch it.

... I have to ask: how is it possible that this "second sun" could be so many different sizes?


If this is an object that was closer to the earth when the larger images were caught on tape, and moved away from us towards the sun, then it's relative size would change.

If that were the case, and if this is a natural, cyclic phenomenon, then I'd expect to see a pattern in the sizes, times, and locations. Has anyone been keeping track of these?

Wish I could say I have, but all I can offer is that it seems that the earlier sightings were bigger than the later ones. Whether my impressions are correct or not is unknown.

Put on a pair of decent sunglasses, take a cd, and look at the sun trough the cd (not too long).

It's just the sun.
edit on 6/3/11 by Romekje because: don't look trough the HOLE of the cd ofcourse

There are two suns.

It's not stupid at all.

... there are two suns.

Use your brain. If there was such a big and bright celestial body so close to the Sun, don't you think the astronomers around the world would have seen it, studied it and reported it through all scientific channels?

A video by some random person is NOT the proof of a binary companion of the Sun. There's a thing called science.

Ok, i want to see for myself, so i'm off to buy #14 welder's goggles so i can look at the sun with my own eyes. I'll let you know if I see anything....... brb.

Not to mention the physical impossibility of a second sun this close, or that it's only seen in certain areas at different times, and aside from the fact that, in this case, it's only visible in the water, I have to ask: how is it possible that this "second sun" could be so many different sizes?

It is notable, though, that the phenomenon does seem to be increasing dramatically. It could indicate something atmospheric, at most.


Science has many mysteries, my friend. This second sun ISN'T AT ALL imposible. I haven't seen this object myself but why all of a sudden, many videos of a second sun are showing up on the internet? It's not a coincidence that hundreds of people who have no way of contacting each other are hoaxing these videos in such short time of each video before the next. I think what we are seeing is a true anomaly that scientists and Science, in general, can't even begin to explain yet. Easy as that...

I have this object (or something this size) in several pictures taken today from the UK. I dropped the exposure on my Samsung U900 to -2.00 and took a few shots of the sun over a period of a couple of hours. I have 5 shots of the sun with something like this in 4... I think. Problem is I've no USB cable for my phone... I'll figure it out and get them here ASAP.

Ok, they didn't have #14's but they had #10's. The sun is still a little bright with the #10's, but it dims it enough that i can see the outline of the sun. I just can't look at it too long is all. It's perfect today for this. Blue skies, not a cloud anywhere. I live on the gulf coast, and we have no pollution here. The result: All I saw was the sun, nothing else. Now to be fair, I'll check back at different times of the day, but so far........nothing.

Did someone loose some change in the pool ? Maybe its a quarter or dime, or nickle... Just a possibility.

There have been a lot of pictures and videos of "two suns" lately around the internet....


Well, you just explained it there, without realizing that you did.

This is just a "wagging the dog" situation, ya know.....it starts with just the first person who posts the so-called "two suns" nonsense....and, then it's "Off to the Races" with copycats. The Internet is their playground....equal time, level "field" for the gullible, ignorant, and scammers / frauds / hoaxers......

I took these July 2010. Clearly, "two suns" here, no? There is a wispy cloud in between them even! For better discernment! Or... something..

I took these at work with my cellphone.

That should prove the point of the "debunkers" like myself, actually. How could two real suns appear in the sky with one sun clearly in front of (or, rather, shining through) the clouds and the other partially behind the same clouds?
It's an atmospheric illusion.

Science does have many mysteries, but the force of gravity is, locally, not one of those mysteries. A second sun close enough to be seen this clearly isn't even possible if you squint and keep you fingers crossed behind your back.
Why do I feel like I'm repeating myself? I'm ignoring the next person who tries to tell me that a second sun is physically possible. I'm the wrong person to be trying to convince of that.

Well, the 2 suns story is now on MSNBC..although the scientist reporting really is grasping at straws, IMO.



What's going on? Life's Little Mysteries, a sister site to Space.com, asked Jim Kaler, the University of Illinois astronomer who squelched the excitement over the aforementioned exploding Betelgeuse and who has written books on the day and night sky. The double sun image is an effect of optical refraction, Kaler said, but it's a "pretty darn rare" one, and one not fully explained by science.
