See a Green Flash at Sunset

There was no video to open just auditory. Disappointment.

Green Flash

Could NOT open Pod to see Flash.

Green Flash

Thank you so much for the explanation of the "cascade of setting suns." We've seen the Green Flash watching the sun set over Lake Michigan (from the West Michigan coast) but I never guessed the cause. Once again, thank you for a genuinely fascinating and informative show!
