Is it a Nibiru or something else?

I didnt know where to put this thread, but some guy recorded what appers to be a planet in our solar system that is visible from earth and its very close . MAYBE YOU CAN TELL WHAT IS THIS

yuh, at first I thought it was glare from his camera that was making the image, until you see the middle of it and the clouds go past it, it does look like a planet and something HUGE...

S&F

unless he's doing CGI...

Lens flare. It disappears because the cloud moves in front of the Moon. Why do people keep falling for this?

If it was a lens flare, then there would be no glare once the clouds move over from the moon, in daytime, I can see it being a lens flare from all the light. but not during the night.

If this was a celestial body, wouldn't the sun reflect off it? Like the moon!

Or maybe not?

Looks like optical reflection between the lenses to me...

I agree, unless I'm looking at the wrong thing, I clearly see a reflection artifact of the moon, a little darker, under the moon, look close, you can even spot the tell tale moon craters we've all come to recognize

seriously guys.

Oh crap, we're screwed.

There is a rogue planet on a collision course with Earth and only one person in the world can see it! WE'RE ALL DOOOOOOMED!

It really does look like lense flare. If you look closely the mirrored object is the same size, shape, and displays the same shadow as the moon. Just as an example, pause the clip at 8:39, you can very clearly see that this mystery planet's surface looks exactly like the moon. When the camera moves, the mystery planet moves relative to the camera's movement. It's an optical anomaly, not a harbinger of death.

Doesn't matter about the ambient light, i.e. daylight or night-time. What matters is that a powerful light source be in shot or just out of shot and at a sufficient angle to produce an internal reflection:


Flare manifests itself in two ways: firstly as a haze across the image, making the image look "washed out" by reducing contrast and color saturation (adding light to dark image regions, and adding white to saturated regions, reducing their saturation), and secondly as visible artifacts. Flare is particularly caused by a very bright light sources either in the image – which produces visible artifacts – or shining into the lens but not in the image – which produces a haze.

I dont like linking wiki as a source but the above sums it up nicely.

Pause the video and the so called "object" is of the exact same dimensions and shading pattern as the Moon, in fact, you can even make out the shading difference where the sea of tranquility would be on the "object".

This guy is deliberately misleading people as it would not be visible to the naked eye, so for that fact alone, the guy is a total charlatan. Only after video views in all likelyhood.

In summary, purely a lens flare due to the strong light source (the Moon)

So do lens flares have dense are they solid objects?

This has been posted several times before. It's just a reflection artifact. If you listen to what the guy in the video says, he is viewing the moon by holding a video camera up to a pair of binoculars. Therefore you have the image of the bright moon passing through the lenses of the binoculars, then being reflected off the lens of the camera, back onto the eye piece of the binoculars, which is what is being seen as 'a planet' by the camera.

The guy making the youtube video will know this, he has to, unless he is a complete and utter moron. You can tell him I said that.

Well we were debating the OP video but ok, i'll bite. that video you just posted looks like a constellation arcing across the sky just ahead of the sun coming into view. Possibly the lower half of Orion with Rigel and m42/43 in the middle. Need to confirm where and when that vid was shot and then it can easily be confirmed as known stellar objects. If a system of planets were close enough to be that bright in the pre-dawn sky, it would have been seen by every amateur astronomer in whatever hemisphere that was in.

Anyway, back to the OP vid, here is another example of the exact same artifact in an image, you can find hundreds of them online from from those taken years ago to ones more recently taken:

Yes, It is three planets.
Jupiter, Venus, and Mercury.

Learn to identify lens flares and internal reflections, guys. Stop jumping at every dodgy YouTube video that shows SFA.

Umm, let's see... I'll see if I can tackle this head-scratcher for you. I'm gonna say, off the top of my head, without doing any real research, that "people" always fall for this probably because most people have not heard of the word "lens flare" unless they've been researching nibiru for a while or they know a lot about photography. So, I apologize, but great egos like yours will forever be pestered by those who happen to not have come across the same little piece of information that you have happened to during your life. Shame on them for not being just like you and knowing everything you know!


Just lighten up a little and try not to be annoyed by people and instead, teach them, and you can make this process of everybody waking up and learning truths go more smoothly for everybody! Unless ridiculing others and making them feel like there is something wrong with them because they "fell for it" and you didn't, is your method for letting off some steam and making yourself feel better in this stressful life, then, well carry on... do what you need to do. P.S. I notice you no longer work with esurance
unless there's something I don't know... I know, I know... There's a Lot I don't know
Peace!

Zack,

The problem here is that far too many people make immediate assumptions about photos, without checking to see if there are other possible explanations. There are dozens of threads scattered across the ATS forum with photos that include lens flares, and an equal number of explanations by people who know what they are. The question is......why do people keep thinking that there are rogue planets or brown dwarfs in the local neighbourhood? Don't you think that this would be headline news around the world? Despite what many conspiracy theorists assert, it would be impossible to keep this information from the general public. There are hundreds of thousands of amateur astronomers scattered across the globe, and hundreds of millions of people that are capable of looking up and seeing large, bright objects in the night sky with their own eyes. That is reason enough to question the deductions of idiots who "spot" rogue planets in photos. People need to "think" a bit more when they see photos and videos like this.
