Ducted Mock Mirage Green Flash

image index
Another mock mirage green flash sequence by Mila Zinkova taken over the Pacific Ocean in November '05. Read the images from left to right. Rays are trapped in the inversion layers forming a duct. Inside the duct an inverted image of the sun ascends and an erect image descends. The diminutive flash is above the duct on frames 6 and 7. The whole sequence is seen through threads of cloud.
