A Mysterious Object

Winnipeg, Manitoba.

"On January 14, 1983, I observed a perfectly round black orb crossing the sun. It started at 17h 54m 23s Universal Time and ended at 17h 54m 26s Universal Time and lasted three seconds. On a projected solar disk with a diameter of 18 centimetres, the object had a diameter of one-half centimeter."

(Lohvinenko, Todd; "A Mysterious Object," Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, National Newsletter, 77:L19, 1983.)

Comment. This object traveled too fast to be an intramercurial planet; too slowly for a meteor.

Path taken by the black spot cross the face of sun. Path taken by the black spot cross the face of sun.
