Occulting Sun
Texas, on July 24, 2003

This was the first photo showing sunrise in Amarillo on July 24 at 8:-3 AM. The camera shifted to new location for the next picture.
Note the occultation at the bottom of the rising Sun by Planet X. Only a body standing between the Earth and Sun could create this occultation. There are no clouds nor hills to create this, demarked by the yellow swath across the bottom of the sphere in this Texas photo, and by a rounded partial sphere in the Egypt photo. Note also the increasing size of the occultation, as compared to photos captured in Egypt on July 9 and Australia on July 16.
