South Africa, on Dec 28, 2003

These were taken on the 28 Dec 2003. These foto's were all taken with a floppy disc platter in front of the lens. It is possible to place these extra light objects all around the sun just by moving the camera about. The funny thing is that the white dot stay to the right of the yellow one.
The moving dots are obviously flares, perhaps one a reflection on the camera lens, the other a reflection on the floppy filter. But the dust tail remains in the same position throughout! Note the similar appearance and placement in Louisiana and New York, same time period.
