It seems to me, the study of lens flares is crucial to knowing what is physically real...
Nothing "real" here... your just seeing light getting 'cut' through a prism (the camera lens)... Read a few posts back. Someone talks of
gravitational effects that would be present if your planet did, in fact , exist...
are we just supposted to shoot and guess that what comes out is always a hoax, by definition?
No, just when it comes to lens flare (a known phenomena, when a light source is near, or in most cases, in front of the camera). If your taking a
photo of your grandma and then develop them and find two of her... well, you either had the shakes when you took the pic or, you've got a
doppleganger on your hands...
[shrug]...on what is and what isn't a lens flare.
All you've shown us, IS lense flare.
at what point will we be able to view Sedna with the naked eye?
NEVER. Can you see Neptune & Pluto with the naked eye? I thought not.
Why would you expect to see something even further away with your eye...
I'm trying to figure out what this blue thingie is that keeps showing up as a large blue or gray blog on so many sky-cam photos.
It's lense flare, Not that hard to figure out...
It's something you should know about and deal with when taking outdoor photos...
How do you make these decisions, yourself?
Most would call it, common sense.
Have another look at your pics EC...
