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."

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

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