Unexplained Atmospheric Phenomenon Makes It Look Like There's A Planet Near The Sun

Mike is ViralNova's resident Editor of the Weird. If it makes you say "OMG! That's terrible!!!" then Mike probably wrote it. Despite the subject of his articles Mike is surprisingly well adjusted. When he's not writing, he's making music, performing, and producing podcasts.

The universe's many celestial processes are difficult to understand, even to those who are trained to study their ways. Take what this woman caught on film, for example. She was relaxing on the beach this past summer, and as she was taking in the lovely sunset, she noticed something that didn't look right.

When she looked to the left of the sun, she saw a bright speck that looked like another planet. Before you say it, it wasn't the moon. She looked right behind her and saw that the moon was hanging where it was supposed to be. So what was she looking at?

This is just confusing.

I'm willing to admit that what we're seeing is probably some sort of bizarre atmospheric phenomenon. That being said, seeing something like this appear so suddenly is really, really unsettling.
