What seemed to be a “black sun” was recorded at Neumayer Station III, Antarctica on December 19/20, 2013. Hopefully an embedded video of the “black sun” appears above. Instead of a “black sun” what seems to have happened is a camera anomaly. (Further background: Crisis in Cosmology (Part 6), Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry of December 27, 2013.)
Some persons who believed the “black sun” was caused by the lost planet Niburu eclipsing the Sun now have egg on their faces. And so too does “Ersjdamoo” have egg on his face after he forgot the Ptolemaic conception of the Universe.
“‘Infinite Universe’ had been the one unproven faith until around the start of the 20th century, when ‘geometrical curvature’ began to dictate observation,” erroneously reported Ersjdamoo’s Blog on December 27th. In reality, “Infinite Universe” had been merely my own unproven faith until challenged by the “Big Bang” Theory (BBT) and its “expanding universe” model.
The earlier predominant faith (before BBT) had been in geocentric models, not so different from “Big Bang” itself. The geocentric model (also known as geocentrism, or the Ptolemaic system) is a description of the cosmos where Earth is at the orbital center of all celestial bodies. The geocentric model held sway into the early modern age and transition to a heliocentric model, however the transition between these two theories met much resistance, not only from Christian theologians, but also from those who saw geocentrism as an accepted consensus that could not be subverted by a new, unknown theory. 
In the system of Aristotle, the spherical Earth is at the center of the universe, and all other heavenly bodies are attached to 47–56 transparent concentric spheres which rotate around the Earth.  This I call the “eggshell universe” with many shells surrounding the Earth.
What was the “Big Bang” Universe expanding into, wondered Ersjdamoo’s Blog on December 21, 2013. “Did ‘Big Bang’ blow out a ‘shell’ of some sort, and ‘expand’ beyond the shell?”  Now we can see that the “Big Bangers” apparently support to an extent the “eggshell universe” of Aristotle! As noted above, the geocentric models are not so different from “Big Bang” itself.
On December 23, 2013 Ersjdamoo’s Blog noticed, “An observer watching through her telescope on Earth is coincidentally at the center of the Big Bang Universe. Isn’t that amazing, how the Earth (considering the immensity of the Universe) just happens to be in the vicinity of where ‘Big Bang’ is supposed to have happened about 13.7 billion years ago?”  Yet again we can see how the geocentric models are not so different from “Big Bang” itself.
In 1970, French astronomer Gérard de Vaucouleurs sighed and wrote that there were “parallelisms between modern cosmology and medieval scholasticism…” Empirical evidence was being disregarded in favor of mathematical abstractions. “Big Bang” Theory was all-important, and never mind the contrary evidence. Two modern astronomers, Vicent Martinez and Virginia Trimble, are in agreement with de Vaucouleurs’ sentiments about the medieval parallelisms. The geocentric astronomers of pre-Copernican times just increased the complexity of their earth-centered model when faced with the new observations pointing to heliocentrism. Martinez and Trimble can’t help but notice how many of today’s astronomers seem to be continually “re-editing an undeclared unsuccessful model of the universe to accommodate it to new and unexpected observations…”  The “Big Bangers” have traveled to medieval times and borrowed material. From there they went “back to the future” and gave us “Big Bang” Theory (BBT) as if it were entirely brand new.
