actualy i was curious about all this thread about the sun and his compagnon and i don't know what to think about
i'v read many passionate thread about that subject and seriously i still don't know what to think...
but i found that video today from a russian who had made a video i guess with his cell phone of the sun and you can see next to it there is a spot...
please don't tell me it's a flare, i think many of you know how lens flare are and how it work...and flare don"t stay a the same point .
I would have to agree with you, it doesn't look like a lens flare. It looks like a second sun, literally. Only it's a bit blue. I have seen other
videos showing this effect. Not sure how it is produced or if it is something really up there.
A little further into the video, it looks like the object is in front of the clouds.
Antarctica's Two Suns This image is from the webcam at Neumayer Station Antarctica from around noon today (4/21/11) and it appears to show 2
Suns overtaking the station. I have several Antarctica webcams on my site. --Brad S.
you mean it's a refraction of the sun on the iternal lens of the cell phone ... and Total internal reflection is an optical phenomenon that happens
when a ray of light strikes a medium boundary so this is the imitation of the sun light ? i found many article abour Total internal reflection ... i
also found a video with the sun and lens flare and internal reflection cause by the strong light of the sun and it look very differente...
Cameras contain lenses. Light entering a camera can be bright enough to reflect inside of the camera. It can reflect off of the film or off of the
detector. It can reflect off of the back side of lenses. Better cameras are made with baffles to prevent or minimize internal reflections.
ou mean it's a refraction of the sun on the iternal lens of the cell phone
Refraction does not need to be involved. Reflections can account for the issue.
As you are learning, cameras are prone to many problems when photographing bright objects. Cell phones have cheapo cameras in them. They have no
internal baffling, cheap lenses, and junky detectors even if they claim a large number of pixels. The use of wide angle lenses allows for a greater
depth of field at the expense of lower image quality.
i know camera contain lenses... but i never had this kind of artifact maybe because i use professional camera, i had lens fare and ray, lenses
don't like much the sun and we need a special filter, but this one suprise me i never saw something like this, i saw sun dog and reflection of the sun
take it frome a window, but this one don"t move and located near the sun, one day i took a picture of the moon and i had a lens flare round has a
seconde moon but the reflection was not so close...but i can not argue i don't have appropriate knowledge...my impression is that you have all the
answers.. all it's possible even the impossible

Over the last few weeks I have witnessed the sunrise while walking the dog. Most of the time it's been hazy and I have been able to directly look at
and see the outline of the sun. I am glad to say I have only seen one sun. I think all of these reports of a 2nd sun are due the camera lens
reflections or just faked. Take everything you see on YouTube with a pinch of salt.
If you own a good camera then you have seen the sides of the optical path that are designed to limit internal reflections. Most of these images are
taken through a window where there are reflections inside of the double paned glass or reflections inside of a cheapo camera.
my impression is that you have all the answers
I spend a great deal of time reading and attending lectures to improve my knowledge of the world.
What I find so surprising is that people look at such silly claims as a second sun and cannot figure out for themselves that there is no such second
sun. There are lots of videos of wheels appearing to turn backwards and no one is claiming that this actually happens.
