Green Flash, Sarasota, Florida

image index
Sunset Sarasota, Florida. Kai Schreiber captured this I-Mir flash May '05. A cue that a flash might occur was the earlier 'Omega' shape of the sun as shown in the inset (smaller scale than main image). The distorted sun is part of the same mirage. Look also at the spiky 'waves' on the horizon, these are probably not real but instead are the unsteady edge of the mirage. Both effects presage a green flash.
