§ 2. Photos and Videos
Concerning the second part of the movie made by pilgrims left with Paolo Brosio, what those persons consider to be a prodigious figure appearing on the iPhone is clearly a trivial reflection of sunlight.
Merely by way of example and comparison, this photo is a normal picture of the sun, with the classic reverb, the "ray" at the top, in all respects similar to that obtained by the pilgrims with Paolo Brosio.
It is obvious that only a susceptible person could see something definite in forms of that sort, as moreover one of the women, who at minute 3:49 of the video, says (in Italian): "Everyone sees a bit in his own way, eh!",implicitly admits.
In practice, let us watch two freeze-frames of the video mentioned above, where one can easily observe what in the same video is defined Our Lady “with her hand that means Come to me”.
If everyone sees in his own way, this is clearly a well-known phenomenon called “pareidolia”: it makes you perceive complete pictures where there are only random forms.
However there are movies, shot in Medjugorje, that show spectacular pulsations of the sun. In fact, examples of registration of an apparent solar pulsation, even outside of any religious context, are innumerable, in video from around the world. We shall see several examples on this same page.
In this regard I have consulted, on 19 March 2008, Prof. Piero Marietti, director of the Department of Electronic Engineering, University "La Sapienza" of Rome, who stated:
Such an effect may be due to a number of causes. To ascertain the right one we have to know the type of camera and how it precisely works, for example if it has an automatic diaphragm.
Then I personally tried to make a recording of the pulsating sun with a cell phone. After several attempts, the following video has been made by me, from my house, on 20 April 2008, at 2 p.m. (solar time) with a Nokia E65:
Now let us watch a series of films that show, outside of any religious context, apparent solar pulsations (with regard to the black spot at the center of the sun, we have to call into play the technical characteristics of the cameras: plenty of pictures exhibit this effect, when framing a wide and intensely luminous area, which leads to an overexposure of the sensor called CCD [Charge-Couple Device]).
Two videos from England:
This was filmed in the Philippines (it is passed off as a UFO apparition):
