    "Two suns" videos and images have become one of the standard ways for cranks on YouTube to offer "evidence" of their nonexistent planet Nibiru and other absurd ideas.

    These all turn out to be one of two things:

    1. Normal picture with Sun in frame, leading to a second Sun appearing as a ghost image due to internal reflection in the lens. You can often spot these because the "second Sun" is symmetrical with the real Sun in the frame.

    2. Sun dogs. These are reflections of the Sun on high altitude ice crystals, seen commonly in winter in Northern climates. These usually appear about 22 degrees from the real Sun, left or right.

    These get reported because most people have no understanding of how cameras or the weather works. Anyone with experience in photography or meteorology knows what they are.

    don't get all thrilled.... it's not Nimbooboo, not a second sun, and the world isn't ending.... ho hum....just another round of folks scaring themselves silly over nothing....relax....go on with your life....enjoy!!!!

    note that it's over China?... the one country in the world with the worst case of air pollution ever?... all that gunk in the atmosphere has to be the cause....at least, that would be MY supposition.....

    Hoaxes and fake videos seem to have a life of their own. And since no one ever does any research, a lot of kids believe they are real.

    The same thing that is up with fake celebrity nude photos. Someone, somewhere wants to see them, so someone makes them in Photoshop.

    Some parts of the world can see a second sun.

    this kind of reminds me of the Nemesis theory of mass extinctions.

    really just a bunch of sensationalist malarkey
