    Cool Green Flash

    Okay, so I read in one of the discussions about the "green flash" at sunset....heard it mentioned in Pirates...thought it was just something they made up in the movie.
    Someone please enlighten me and explain what it really is...

    I'm still skeptical of the green flash. As mentioned in other posts, many people have claimed to have seen it. Hmmmm..... in all my years on the ocean.... must have missed it. But, you never know.
