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.

Some interesting notes about the OP video:
1) The person NEVER zooms in on the "objects"
2) The person ALWAYS pans the camera from the center of the sun to the LEFT to bring the objects into view.
3) The person NEVER brings the objects into view by panning from the left to the right, from the bottom up or from the top down.
4) As the person moves the camera while showing the objects, their shapes shift to where they are going in and out of round.
5) When the person moves the camera to talk to the UPS delivery man, all objects are casting one shadow.
6) The UPS delivery man is noticing nothing unusual.
7) After talking to the UPS man, the person with the camera again centers on the sun and pans to the left to see the objects.
Conclusion: the "objects" are not really their and are artifacts from the camera lens, and could only be produced if the camera was aimed at a certain angle and panned to the left.
Please...there is no day that should be described as being able to, "comfortably able to look at the Sun." You should never look at the Sun without appropriate protection. Even welding glasses is inadequate. Recommending or insinuating persons can do this at anytime without appropriate protection is extremely irresponsible.

My face when it just occurred to me how many people are going to go blind this year staring up at the sun looking for anomalies:

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)
