Timing - The essence of Life and the Green Flash
Seeing the green flash is timing. If you stare at the sun going down you wont be able to see it.
Watch a darker part of the horizon and keep the setting sun in your peripheral vision. Then, just as the upper limb goes down, look back at the to the spot where it sank.
The green light is not bright so your eyes have to be sensitive enough to pick it up which they won't be if you've been focusing on that bright orb.
Try it next time the conditions are 'perfect'.
