“Sun Shades and Green Flash”


Description from Cotopaxi Chickie Sue: Green flashes are phenomena seen at sunrise and sunset, when some part of the Sun suddenly changes color (at sunset, from red or orange to green or blue). "Flash" refers to the sudden appearance and brief duration of this green color, which usually lasts only a second or two at moderate latitudes.
