Lightbulb Earth's Two Suns

Kaltx

I don't know if there was started already something like this, but I found this video this morning on YouTube and I was a little stunned.







It is about China reporting two suns East in the ocean at sunrise, but also I don't know what to believe. If there would be possible for our solar system to face two stars shouldn't the light be more intense or the people awared of the consequences ? Because frankly we barely face one extending sun, but two ?

Then I found this link which was posted in January, telling that around 2012 we might face two paralel stars.

Two Suns? Twin Stars Could Be Visible From Earth By 2012

This is a subject people needed to know very long time ago, because a sun doesn't appear in the second instant... It took billions of years for our sun to take shape, but another one ?

What are your thoughts on this ?

I went looking around and found more info. There's a bunch of articles (like MSNBC's article) and they mostly say the story about 2012 is fake. I'd think we'd know more about a second sun already if it was going to happen. Then again, who knows...

Anyway, even though the video is a mirage, I think it would be something very cool to see in person. I'm glad you posted about this.

Eh, I really see no way for this to be possible in any way
Optical illusion...

It could be awesome to see, but we can't know how us all, fauna and flora would face this...

I think it is a little bit inspired from the Alpha Centauri star system which is formed of two giant stars.

Haha - nice reflection. There are a number of videos showing something like this on the internet. And of course the 2012 people with their twin sun/dead star/planetX theories are all over this. Obviously, if there would indeed be a second sun, it would not just appear on sunset in China - and it would require kind of a massive conspiracy of all space agencies to cover up the discovery of any dead sun/second sun/comets/giant planets entering the vicinity
So I think not fake, but just nice optical effect!

Obviously fake, but the idea behind a "second sun" is a possibility, but not likely. Betelguese has basically been ready to explode in a supernova for as long as we've known, and it could explode sometime in the next two million years. Obviously that wouldn't literally make a "second sun", but the brightness of such an event would give that effect on the sky.
