Science is never irrelevant, in my view.
But then, perhaps it is for those willing to deny, distort and twist the evidence, or other member's replies?
Please, spare us your ignorant comments - and, when quoting a response, be sure to include ALL of the relevant paragraphs, not just the ones that fit the angle you're trying to push.

Don't know if this was pointed out in the thread or not, but people looking at the Sun would NOT see the object if it's only visible in infrared spectrum. Now if one uses any kind of digital camera, the object would be visible, because digital cameras detect infrared light. You can test it yourself by pointing your TV remote to your phones camera.
Now keeping that in mind and the idea that the object is only visible in certain areas of the world and at certain times only, this all idea doesn't look that much crazy, or does it?edit on 14-8-2012 by gmacev because: (no reason given)edit on 14-8-2012 by gmacev because: (no reason given)

So there was 2 sun's in the sky and this one guy was the only one to notice it and video tape it?!?!?!
Don't you think at least one other person or two, or a million would have seen it?

Those who claim this is a sundog clearly don't understand what a sundog is.
Please, inform yourselves first: en.wikipedia.org...
Just google "sun dog" and you will see for yourself a "sun dog" doesn't look like that at all...Also:
- if it were a sundog, it should have a twin on the opposite side;
- sun dogs do not present perfect spheres, let alone a white and a red one quite distinct from each other.
So, whatever it is, it's not a sun dog.
Secondly, for those who say "if there was a second sun we should all see it by now" - you clearly don't understand anything about astronomy, physics, and in particular the nature of elliptical orbits in connection with the earth's own revolution around the sun.
Just like our common stars/ solar planets aren't visible all day in the same location, an incoming object could very well only be visible at specific hours in certain locations at varying angles, with a periodicity very different than those of our solar planets.
That being said, I do not claim this video is legit. Some things about it bother me, though I can't quite make out what it is.
I just believe we should steer clear of ignorant debunking claims.

I checked out part of the video.
1. We see a bright object on the right - probably the Sun
2. We see a bright object move with respect to the Sun when the camera moves
3. We see 2 bright objects which do not move relative to the Sun
The bright object that moves relative to the Sun is a lens flare.
The seemingly stationary pair of objects are reflections outside of the camera and thus not lens flares. They are reflections of the Sun right in front of the camera probably due to a window.
This is not the first posting of such a hoax. These sorts of videos have been posted multiple times and they are hoaxes.
Heck, all the world's astronomers and space agencies sometimes miss incoming asteriods that are km's in diameter and they aren't detected until they have passed us, albeit much smaller than the "theoretical" Planet X, but reflecting light in the visible spectrum.
Sounds very plausible no doubt correct. What makes the second white "sun" to throb and seem to misshape?
