Russia, on Jan 5, 2004

A few pix from Russia.
Under filters, the Corpus emerges, with Wing flares at 2 o'clock and 8 o'clock. Unfiltered, the Sun still shows these Wing flares, along with an extra reflection in the water from this second light source, a diagonal line flare. Note the intensity of the Corpus rivals the Sun! Compare this to remarkably similar photos from Italy and South Africa, same time period.
