Got this email from Göran Beckman today. This is something that needs to be monitored.

Subject: 2 suns at Antarctica?!
To: Marshall Masters


Hi Marshall,
 
As you know I'm currently following what's going on at the Neumayer station.
 
The last few days they had really bad weather, actually a snowstorm with zero visibility.
 
Anyway, on June 25 I found something very interesting. The visibility suddenly improved a little bit at 10:38 GMT for about 10 minutes and guess what, there appeared to be 2 suns in the sky! It doesn't seem to be a sunflare, but I'm not sure.
 
I have placed the image for you into a word document.
 
The webcams at Neumayer is at Position: (70°39'S, 08°15’W)
 
The problem I have with this is that at 90° south a couple days after spring equinox there should be no sunrise.
 
Sunrise in the Antarctic doesn't occur between June 3rd and July 11th!
 
And still it seems as though the sun has been rising in the Antarctic for the last 2 weeks, as is apparent from this Live web cam at Neumayer Station.
 
I have also seen a few youtube videos with the same phenomena, 2 suns in the sky.
 
What do you make of this?
 
/ Göran

Here's a link to the only "live" and "working" webcam I found: http://www.travelcams.net/network/camera/live-webcams/antarctica/maud/neumayer.html
Live long and prosper!

Here is my link to Neumayer Station:
http://www.awi.de/NM_WebCam/livemovieT.html

Been watching this webcam since April and I must say, very interesting things are seen, but I've never put this together. I did notice the dark all around the clock recently, but I didn't think it had been till recently that I saw the sun. I can confirm that the sun rose today around 8:50 UTC.

Here is a link to my other Neumayer thread - http://planetxtownhall.com/index.php?topic=2159.0

Don't know about everybody else but 1 of my 2 brain cells comes to a complete
stop when it tries to figure out what time it is at my location compared to what
time is is at the Neumayer Station.
 So: First, this explains the GMT and UTC time designation and also has time
zone conversion charts.

Here is a much easier chart to use but it only converts to Central Standard
time and Central Daylight Time because it is the one I use.

If you go directly to the website, they have cut off the camera now.  Its no longer operational.  This is quite interesting.
