I was reviewing the photos I took of the recent solar eclipse when I noticed something interesting. Visible in some of the pictures is a white dot near the sun. During the peak of the eclipse there are two dots visible.
I’m really curious what those white dots are. I’m guessing they could be stars or neighboring planets. Whatever they are, they’re shining bright enough to be seen in the afternoon sky. Time to consult my astronomy apps to see if I can identify what they are.
