. dont u find it at least abit strange . and for all our minds can comprehend it could be a 5-dimensional planet shifting back.
Not at all, this is what happens when you point cameras that were not designed to handle intense light through their optics at the sun, things go wrong. The optics and the sensors are in overload and try to disperse the light as best they can.
Why would a 5th dimensional planet that pops in and out for a bit(lol) only seem to be visible when people point crappy cameras at the sun?

what i fear is that one of your laser dots is the beam reflecting off of the water and the other is the beam hitting the bottom of the sink.

If our system is binary, the other star would have to be a planetary object and not a star, (because we can't see it) and... it has never been seen. So how would the orbit change to a point where we could see it.... up close.... next to the sun?
While the discovery of planets outside our solar system is becoming more common, only a tiny fraction of these planets have been found to orbit stars which themselves are in binary or multiple systems. This is simply because in these systems, there is little room between the stars for planets to form.
I agree that the above text makes a lot of sense, but there are certain binary systems where the suns closely orbit in an elliptical fashion and each contain planetary systems. NN Serpentis is a prime example of this. The binary stars did not always orbit so closely to each other but as one companion began to burn out the orbital passing became closer. Research at the binary institute proposes that "If the companion acted like a planet orbiting our sun, and the orbit periodicity was close to the precession periodicity, then standard calculations would put our binary counterpart somewhere between 848.5 AU and 1515 AU depending on its mass and eccentricity." Meaning its orbit could lay about 0.0134172107 Away. This is assuming the orbit is more rounded rather than elliptical.
Sirius A and B - Distance Apart 0.0004 Light Years. Imagine what that would look like if you lived there. But after all, this is just my humble opinion and I accept all constructive/intelligent criticism you have to offer on the subject.

A simply way to look at the sun is one we did when I was little and the family wanted to view a sun eclipse.
Just get a piece of glass and a candle. Hold the burning candle under the piece of glass and let the soot blacken the glass. Burn a bit extra towards on site so the glass is a bit blacker on one side. Now you can look at the sun and cancel out lens flares,glass flares, reflections etc because the soot give it a matt finish.
I took a picture of the sun when i did notice something. Just go ahead and try it
