I saw this on two occasions, both in Portugal. Quite an amazing phenomenon to experience. It lasts no more than a couple of seconds. A pair of binoculars (or good zoom lense) is needed. Like 2

Your fellow countryman, Jules Verne, wrote a novel based on this unique phenomenon, oddly set off the West coast of this country. I envy your luck in observing, and capturing an image, of it.

All the best, from Scotland.

Thank you Rob. It took me years to take this picture ! Thank you for your visit. Next June, we expect to be back in Scotland. May be we could get a chance to watch a green sun from there again !
