'Two suns' spotted in China defy explanation
Weeks after a story shot across the Web claiming that the imminent explosion of a nearby star would result in the appearance of a second sun in the sky — a story that was later debunked — two suns were caught on camera yesterday in China. The suns — one fuzzy and orange, the other a crisp yellow orb — appeared side-by-side, one slightly higher than the other.
What's going on? Life's Little Mysteries, a sister site to Space.com, asked Jim Kaler, the University of Illinois astronomer who squelched the excitement over the aforementioned exploding Betelgeuse and who has written books on the day and night sky. The double sun image is an effect of optical refraction, Kaler said, but it's a "pretty darn rare" one, and one not fully explained by science.
Several related atmospheric optical effects are fully explained by science. Sun dogs, sunset mirages, sun pillars and sun halos are all relatively common and well understood. But not this effect.

Well,,,
I used to watch " My 3 Sons" with my older sister when i was a Kid.

But it wasn't a darn rare thing.

in fact,,, we watched it once a week,, on CBS.


Then, ,,, my 3 suns went into reruns,,, and we watched it about 5 days a week.

so,,,,
when the Chinese figure out how to do reruns,,,
they can watch ,,,

their 2 Suns a lot more often.

Making it ,,, heh heh... not so special.

and when i was a kid, watching my 3 sons,,,, well,,, it was only special to my older sister,,,

cause,,,,,,,
she had a crush on Robbie,,, heh heh,,,,

a special crush i think.

Oh woe to a special crush.
