Folks, these extraordinary (5) photos were taken by a friend of a very close friend of mine. The photos were taken last evening (August 20th 2013) at Sunset, the person taking the photos lives in Burlington City, NJ. These were her comments with the photos. If anyone has seen anything similar please let me know. These are just phenomenal photos! A quiet evening (Aug. 20th) was broken by banging on my door. "Come out, come out. The sun's on fire". Bring your camera." And there it was. The most amazing sight I have ever seen. It appeared as if "flames" were jumping off the sun. It was a huge, complete, orange ball of fire, but the camera couldn't capture it's intense color. It did capture the "fire" and "flames". This was unbelievable. In the last pic, the sun is partially hidden by passing clouds. What in the world was this????

The answer to this is likely not the sun but what is below it. It appears that the structure below is some kind of smokestack or other such industrial fixture capable of venting heat into the atmosphere. If you notice the "flames" change position on the sun but remain above the stack when one views the pictures on the website. Ths I would suspect that heat is creating air turbulence above the stack and as such is distorting the sun's light as it passes through. You can see a similar effect next time you build a campfire, simply observe what is behaind the fire and in the heat column directly above it. You will see a similar form of distortion.

I agree with CaveRat because I didn't see anything like that where I live.
Right this way to my haunted space.

Yup. Caverat is right. Whatever comming out of that smokestake is disorting the sunlight and creating the illusion.
Don't take life too seriously, no one ever gets out alive.
