Winged Globe
China, on Aug 18, 2003

We had a hazy and cloudy day, nevertheless got some remarkable shots.
The Winged Globe is caused by a combination of the flare from the Occulted Sun, the double suns, here clearly visible. The White Persona is above the Sun, fading when the wing flare appears, the wing flare slanting according. In the ancient Summerians depiction, the tail feathers appear pendulous, swinging, in this manner. Compare to Winged Globes from Italy and New York, taken in the same time period.
