Green Flash - 200707LJW

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

A green flash occurs at sunset (and sunrise) when the air is clear and you have a view of the horizon. It is caused by a refraction of the sun’s light (like a prism). They are a bit rare, but occur whenever the conditions are right.
