Images of Multiple Suns

Some flat-Earthers discovered images of multiple suns in the sky. They jumped to the conclusion that it proves whatever they want it to confirm. In reality, we can explain them without going for farfetched scenarios.

Atmospheric conditions can cause as if more than one suns to appear in the sky. The presence of ice crystals in the atmosphere can cause a sundog. It can seem there are three suns in the sky. Clouds and other weather phenomena can cause the sun to appear as dim as the moon. If both are in the sky, it can seem like two moons or two suns in the sky.

Buildings can reflect sunlight toward the observer, and it can appear as if there are multiple suns during a sunset or sunrise.

Cameras can also produce artifacts that can be creatively interpreted as another sun. Most cameras, especially low-quality ones, produce lens flares on bright objects against darker surroundings. Cross-threaded or poorly aligned camera filters can cause offset lens reflection, which can cause “another sun” to appear next to the actual sun.

Last but not least, we cannot rule out intentional image manipulation. Using Photoshop, anyone can fake an image showing more than one suns. Even CGI can produce videos showing multiple suns.
