Although I completely disagree with your hypotheses, I applaud your enthusiasm and the work you have done on the subject. Obviously if two suns can be
viewed with the naked eye, it cannot be caused by a lens flare. In another thread some months ago I linked to some pictures I took that same day to
illustrate the phenomenon of lens flares.
The reason for two suns appearing in the sky, visible with the naked eye, is atmospheric refraction. The conditions that support this phenomenon are
not as rare as some might believe, however there can be different causes depending on the orientation of the second sun, and where it appears in the
There are multiple factors, such as the thickness of the atmosphere, whether the image is vertical to the main image, or adjacent, etc...The main idea
though is that it is just the bending of light, which also accounts for mirages, which many hadn't heard about until relatively recently...at least
pertaining to images in the sky.
This is something you should definitely look into if you wish to present an objective analysis of the subject. Who knows, maybe you could be right,
but I personally doubt it. That shouldn't stop you from pursuing this angle, if you truly believe in it. You have my good wishes.
It just seems that if there were something large enough in space to show up like this on earth, then we would know about it. I believe there is a
possibility of our system being binary, but I don't think it would look like the examples provided. So anyway, good thread, regardless of the fact
that I disagree with you.
