    Green flash!
    From: Gary LaPook

    Following up on my extinction experiment, (see previous post) I decided to watch the sun set from my town. According to my calculations, any body with a declination between about 14° and 16.5° south will set in the gap that I can see to the sea, 250° to 253° true. I calculated that the sun would be setting in this gap from February 2nd through February 12th. On the 2nd I was out there and watched the sun dip into the sea and then I saw the green flash. The color was a little bit yellower than the standard traffic light green and it only lasted about one or two seconds. Yesterday it was cloudy but I was out there again today and saw another green flash! I had only seen one green flash before and that was in the South Pacific, and now, in one week, two! I'll have to try again tomorrow.
