The green flash at sunset

Travel notes for the professional at Leisure

June 2008



The Green Flash

The green flash is a rare condition where the optics of the upper atmosphere refracts the sunlight into a bright green hue.  The green flash is seen at sunset, just as the orb of the sun descends below the horizon.

Simulation of the Green Flash

The green flash is very rare, and the atmospheric conditions must be just right.  It only lasts a few seconds, but it is a real Caribbean treat.  The green flash is the adult equivalent of a Snipe hunt, and it offers a great excuse to observe the stunning sunsets of the Caribbean.

This is an excerpt from the book "Turks and Caicos Islands Insider Adventures" by Rampant TechPress.
