I honestly went to this site innocently enough. I saw a very cool gigapan image yesterday of Mt. Everest. This morning I was killing time and searched for gigapan on google to see some other images. It took me to gigapan.com . It was a huge gigapan of the South Pole. Within about 3 seconds I was drawn to what I have to assume is either the Sun (I think) or the Moon. What are those 4 or more objects to the right of the light source? I zoomed in and it looked even more mysterious than I thought initially.

I would post the image but not sure how to do it.

gigapan.com...

Check it out.. what are those objects?

I also was not sure exactly where to post this and a mod or mods can move this to the appropriate forum if need be.

It just worked for me. Try just gigapan.com . It should be the main picture as soon as you arrive at the top of the page.

Try this as well.

I'd say its the Moon and two of the objects close to the right of it look to me like lens flare .

nice picture you found..
they look like planets, but the shadows on them are not in the correct place if they was near the sun...
most likely reflections?

When I click on your link, I assume you mean the first picture under the "explore more" on the right .....

And I also assume you mean the "double moons" on the right of the sun ??

Thirdly... my first instinct is that it's the overlap between two photos or remnants of a time elapsed photo. Other than that .... no clue but good catch

awesome view...


not sure what they are, first guess would be
lens flare, but cant say for sure.
Hopefully someone can come along that knows
this site more. First time i have seen it...

but if you zoom in on them, it almost looks like a
land mass on the first one... kind of odd....

but i'm sure thats just my eyes playing tricks on me...

whatever it is it sure is beautiful. Things have to be different there then here though because the moon went down last night 5 hours after the sun did.

Cool stuff. Though the photo experts will probably turn up and explain a more mundane reason for these things.
Still, you shared a heck of a site and my next few hours are going to be filled with some incredible pics! Thanks.

# me, when are people going to learn that crescent suns/planets!? in photos are lens flares. Put any planet that close/visible, well you wouldn't be able to take such photo....Orbital blah blah of the...I'm not going to bother !

Whatever the two larger objects are the shadows are facing towards the sun which doesn't make any sense. Probably some type of lens flare, but I know nothing about photography.

glad you could join us with all your photo knowledge,
not everyone who visit's ats spends a lot of time
if any looking at photo's from the sky...
so its easy to see how some would not recognize what
a lens flare would look like..
no need to be rude to them.

I think lens flare is the new swamp gas...


...But in this case, I have to agree.

Because the look the same and the shadows are on the wrong sides, I would say this is camera trickery. But it doesn't matter what they are, that picture was worth looking at anyway.

I thought panoramas were made from a series of interlocked photos taken from one side to the next in a quick succession. This could account for the multiple objects, taking into consideration it looks like a lense flare to begin with. But I may be wrong.
