A Flash of Green

APOD: 2002 November 10 - A Green Flash from the Sun: "Many think it is just a myth. Others think it is true but its cause isn't known. Adventurers pride themselves on having seen it. It's a green flash from the Sun. The truth is the green flash does exist and its cause is well understood. Just as the setting Sun disappears completely from view, a last glimmer appears startlingly green."

  1. Ever read the JDM book or see the PBS adaption with Ed Harris?

  2. Both. Some think it's JDM's best book. The movie's not bad, either.
