Another Green Flash…

I went out tonight hoping to catch a glimpse of Comet McNaught after sunset.  The comet proved elusive (I knew it would be tough) but I got there a little early and managed to zoom in and get another set of green flash pictures.  Not a particularly impressive one, but I am getting better at catching the subtle ones.

As always, click to embiggen.  I think this is probably an inferior mirage flash (a mock mirage flash usually needs cool air beneath you and I don’t think there was any cool air around here today!)

Once again proving you don’t need to be looking over water to catch a green flash…although I guess technically the Pacific Ocean is about 400 miles out in that direction.
