There were even news headlines an “earth sized blue planet” had been captured on camera.
Some online viewers of the video, which was uploaded to YouTube by Dill Martin, who says he often analyses planet sightings, speculate it was one one of seven newly-discovered “Earth-sized planets” which NASA revealed details of earlier this year.
Others suggested it could even be the legendary Nibiru or Planet X, about to make a close pass of the earth which would signal our doom.
Conspiracists and UFO seekers have been claiming for years a mysterious huge celestial body called Planet X or Nibiru was hidden away in our solar system, on such an orbit that it passes close to Earth every few thousand years.
And the size of the planet and its gravitational pull is so big that it causes havoc on Earth by trigger earthquakes and volcanoes as it passes, the claim states.
The theory was bolstered in January 2016 when NASA announced the discovery of a Planet Nine hidden in our solar system that is about 10 times bigger than the Earth
But Express.co.uk can reveal the new video is all a fuss about nothing.
The additional orbs in the image are just lens flares, so there was nothing else next to the sun at the time the footage was recorded.
Lens flares happen when light refracts inside the camera lens and then gets reflected back onto the image produced, making it appear as if something that was not there is.
The clip was filmed in Cleveland, Texas, at around 9.20am on March 14.
It had earlier been reported how “incredible footage showed the sun burning brightly, but on closer inspection a mysterious sphere can be seen floating next to it”.
One website said: “The glowing object – which has a blue hue – stays fixed to the side of the sun and never leaves before the video ends.”
It was claimed there were similar sightings in Canada, Italy, Slovakia, Mexico and Brazil.
One viewer posted: “Nice video. The truth is out there.”
But, others were on to it being just lens flare from the start.
One wrote sarcastically: “Two lens flares from two suns! Wow!”
Another believed it was just a fake video, adding: “I have my doubts. The ‘lens flare’ is far too clearly defined and bright.
“I doubt the authenticity.”
Ricky Bartlett, who filmed the video, has uploaded a more recent clip showing the same effect, amid claims something paranormal is going on.
But, the reason is just that lens flares are likely when the camera is pointed directly at the sun, due to the amount of light flooding into the lens.
Scott Brando, forensically examines UFO and paranormal videos and footage to look for the explanation before putting them on website ufoofinterest.org.
He said: “It’s an ‘offset lens reflection’.”
Similar videos have also been examined by Mick West of the metabunk.org website.
He said: “A popular video claims to show an object in the sky that resembles a “second sun”.
“However analysis of the video proves that what is shown is an offset lens reflection of the Sun itself.
“There is nothing else in the sky.
“We can see this quite clearly if we stabilise the video so the background is fixed.
“We can then see the reflection moving with the camera motion.”
