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.
1)The guy did say: "This is the ZOOMED IN version of the video". That sounds to me that the camera is already zoomed in.
Have you tried to take a pic or video of the sun? I have... of a sundog, and it's really difficult if you are not protecting your eyes. What he
should have done was zoom out so we could have seen both (sun and second sun) objects at the same time.
I'm not saying this is another sun, but based on all the pictures I've seen of sundogs, and my own pictures and videos of the one I took this year
while visiting the Dom Rep., this doesn't look to me like a sundog.
2)That's because the "objects" he's looking at are to the left of the sun, not to the right.
3) He did it from the bottom up, but he's using the sun as point of reference to then go to the "objects" that are to the left of such.
4) The "objects" shape shift not to where the camera is going, they just shift or change shape. I though that was due to clouds in the sky, but I
think is because of the poor quality of the video.
5) That's because the primary source of light is the sun, which happens to be the most powerful source of light at the moment. Besides, he moves the
camera too quick and doesn't focus for a period of time to see any details of another weaker shadow.
6) Some people just don't want to be bothered. The guy didn't tell the UPS guy that there was another "sun" in the sky. The guy with the camera
could have been dressed weird, thus the UPS guy didn't want to be bothered by some one like that. I know, I lived my whole life in NYC; people have
places to go and things to do.
7) Again, read explanation 1.
Your conclusion could be right, but then again, he shows the flare from the camera and then move to the objects.
The guy could be fooling all of us just to get some attention. I look at he sun everyday (because of my job I could do it for hours), protecting my
eyes of course, and I have never seen another object or "sun" yet.
