Default Have you seen the green flash?

Have you ben lucky enough to see the green flash at sunset in Key West?

Usally I have been there on a ship, and we left before sunset:. The one time I was there for a weekend, and we went down to Mallory Sq, it was an overcast night,and couldn't see it

Have you seen it, & was it spectacular?

I have not seen it out of Key West but I have seen a green flash off the west coast at sunset many of times when we were off shore Shrimping or crabbing.

We're still Desperately Seeking Sunset, oh no that was almost a Madonna movie I obviously meant the Green Flash - oh another movie

We've seen many clear sunsets over the seas, but still yet to see the flash. We are right in thinking it happens as the top of the sun slips below the horizon aren't we ?

Why do I feel like Captain Jack should be chiming into this thread?
