This is a common occurrence if you are at any bar in Waikiki. I saw it from Duke's last year. I hate Dukes.

Just to keep this interesting thread alive....

Here is a link to a photo and a brief scientific explanation of the green flash.

Gesh! Now I have to try and capture a green flash at sunset... May take me a few months to do so.

after watching countless videos (as I have not seen it ever), all the evidence seems to be a green dot is the last color wave as the sun dips... a light diffraction if you will. Someone please prove me wrong!

Not as sexy as a flash, but hey what do you want from an engineer.

This is brief, but certainly not a scientific explanation and blatantly false with the statement that the green flash lasts a few seconds.
