Kitt Peak Green Flash
Okay, I was up at Kitt Peak on Friday (posted some night pics a couple of days ago) and took a nice burst of Sunset pictures trying to capture the elusive green flash. In reality, you can capture several small green flashes as the Sun sets behind a jagged mountain.
This video is 36 frames taken in burst mode with a Canon Digital Rebel Xti using a 55-250mm EFS lens at f/5.6. I cropped the pics and put them together into a short video (the colors in the original are better…maybe I can figure out how to optimize if for youtube sometime). Each picture is up for 1 second so this is slowed down compared to real life. As the Sun sets, you can see a series of small green flashes as the Sun disappears behind the mountain.
Visually we saw one green flash. The photographs reveal that we really saw a series of small, quick flashes that our eyes perceived as one.
