Default Green Flash, Anyone?

Here's a great photo of a green flash, sometimes seen at the last moment of a sunset. I've never seen one, but the captain of the dive boat I was on in September told me that he's seen several.

He did add that it's a whole lot easier to see them when looking through the bottom of a Heineken bottle.

Beautiful. I will have to watch for that from now on. Sunsets are very peaceful to watch.

Divetex - that's one of my "have to experience" things. Sometimes I wonder if I've seen it but was just expecting something more or different. Guess I'll keep searching till I'm sure.

When I cruised with my friend Suzanne, I told her about the green flash and she thought I was making it up.

Second sunset out, GREEN FLASH !!!

It was really a cool thing for her, as it was her first cruise.

Divetex you had me going on that one, I thought it read green flask at first. Thought you were going to tell us how to import to the cruise ship. Nice picture, hope I get to experience one some day. As for the bottom of the Heineken bottle is that before you drink a few or after the bottle is empty? <VBG>

Cool photo DT. Don't forget Dos Equis Lager bottles are green! I'll empty a few this Friday night, so we can watch for the Flash on Saturday. lol

Haven't seen the green flash yet, but I'll keep looking. Also would like to experience the aurora borealis one day. Missed my chance last week when they were visible in our area between 9:00 and 10:30 p.m.....darn!

Tom,
We saw it once in Kauai - at Poipu Beach.
Awesum! The pic is great, but it doesn't do it justice - the whole horizon flashes green for an instant. Got to tip my hat to whoever took that pic though.
