I always thought this was just an urban legend. Well it's true and it's pretty cool.

Now it always reminds me of the time I heard
someone say that had not heard of it, only the "blue flash cube" by Kodak; they thought the green flash was something new!!

I saw it once. One would be hard pressed to catch it unless you were running a capture thing. I assumed it happened when you were looking into the sunset and when it set you got a red/green thing. But better minds than mine have more elegant solutions. Anyway, I was kind of shocked to actually see it.

We see it very regularly on Playa la Ropa in the winter. So do many many other people. That's why there are so many people out there for sunset!!!

So true, we have seen it on the Sunset Cruise aboard Picante.
I've also seen it many times watching sunsets at numerous Lakes Michigan and Superior beaches in various parts of Michigan.
