    If the picture is a fake of some kind or not is not necessarily
    related to the sun not showing a refractive squash. The sun shown has
    the "normal" appearance of an Omega-sun which, due to the large
    super-adiabatic lapse rate, has a different shape than the "normal"
    sun with the refractive squash. I observed and photographed a lot of
    those real Omega-suns. Usually I notice them only afterwards when
    looking at the pictures taken with a 6x zoom.
