Monster Sun
Saudi Arabia, on Aug 13, 2003

I took these pics on Aug. 13 around 6PM in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia from my phone digital camera.
The Red Persona appears directly in the center of the Sun, in each of these photos, as a perfect beige circle occulting the Sun. The ball of the Sun is also not perfectly round, but oblong to the sides in and the photo taken over the trees is misshapen pulling toward the upper right, again showing an occulted sun, a flood by light from more than one source.
