    If you think about it, every star that you can see on the night sky is someone/something's sun.

    So there really is billions of suns that we can see every night.

    Yeah, you can see that the light is bended in a circle, most likely caused by the lens.

    To drag this discussion away from physics into the occult, the ancient mystics believed in 3 suns: the first represents the material world governed by the gnostic demiurgus (in Christianity the holy spirit), the second the light of intellect which is governed by Lucifer (the evils of intellect without faith), and the third, and greatest, sun represents the supreme light of faith, and is governed by the Christ.

    After viewing an effect such as this it is easy to see where the ancients got these "3 suns" they were speculating about.
