    Hewitt,
    Having seen many "green flashes", you can easily see it with the naked
    eye.  Binocs not required.  You need a very clear horizon and some luck
    with no clouds around the point of sunset on the horizon.  I have seen a
    green flash anywhere from 34 North to 34 South latitude.
