The elusive 'Green Flash' is not really a flash but a moment right before the setting sun disappears when its color turns to green. The atmospheric conditions need to be just right (such as no clouds on the horizon) and it helps to have a beer or glass of wine in hand, but it is real, although most people that say they saw it have credibility issues proportionate to the number of beers they have already consumed.

This green flash occur off the coast of Martinique on June 26th, 2008.
