Oregon Coast Mock-Mirage Flash I
image index
Oregon coast green flash I . George Howard (Gallery) imaged this flash on November 19, 2005 from a rock jetty. The camera was ~ 3m above the sea. (Same sunset from higher up) The flash is of the M-Mir type and the top of the upper inversion layer can be seen faintly in the main image and is very evident in the animation as the sun flattens as it enters the layer. A second inversion much closer to the sea surface is visible as a very dark line. There is much further layering between the two. Images ©George Howard, shown with permission.
