According to an anonymous reader the governments of the world are hiding something huge…
There might actually be two suns!
The reader is also open to the possibility that there might be a large planet somewhere between the Earth and the sun and she’s not talking about Mercury or Venus.
The reader and a friend used different cameras when they photographed the sun recently.
The various images all had one thing in common – a ghostly sphere borders the sun.
What could this be?
The South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO) reckons it’s a lens flare.
The reader insists, however, that it is much more likely that they’re hiding something from us.
She adds: “It’s been very hot recently and this could be the reason. I’ve been on the internet and I can’t find anything that says something strange is happening! I mailed the photos to SAAO and they told me it’s an optical illusion. How could three cameras have the same optical illusion?”
Most are well aware that suns or planets don’t just drop by the solar system for a quick visit and then scuttle off again, but this newspaper nonetheless thought it could be interesting to hear what SAAO says about these photos.
When TygerBurger told an SAAO outreach astronomer Nicola Loaring that she’s clearly part of an elaborate and globalwide conspiracy, she laughed: “Well, obviously I’m in on it!”
Cape Town Photographic Society’s Detlef Basel clears the confusion up for almost everyone when he says: “We are dealing with a camera flare. If this was to be a new planet the rest of the world would have known about it long ago.”
The reader obviously refuses to believe this.
“This doesn’t make sense what they are saying. For three days I took pics and from three different cameras.
“Also the weather! Why doesn’t anyone want to see the facts,” she asks in exasperation.
Considering that the “other” heavenly body is about eight times smaller than the sun when viewed from Earth, it would either be absolutely massive and far away, or alternatively, as big as the Earth somewhere between our planet and Venus.
Since the “other body” can be seen next to the sun it cannot be a planet because from our perspective it would only be a silhouette.
This “other body” produces its own light so it could be a sun.
However, if there’s another sun in the vicinity then we are already dead according to Isaac Newton.
Loaring concludes: “Light often bends or refracts through the lenses of cameras. This multiple reflection can result in multiple images of the object and other artifacts which is what I think the spot is on her picture.
“It is also common to have ‘ghost images’ or flares when the primary light source is particularly bright.”
