Amazing green flash atop sun pyramid
Colin Legg of Australia caught this amazing green flash – a flash of the color green at the upper rim of a setting sun – earlier this week. He calls this shot Sun Pyramid. He wrote:
Some funky aberrations and distortions in this one. We had nice seeing in Perth this evening, so I shot a video of the sun setting behind Rottnest island lighthouse from Cottesloe beach. To avoid wind jitter, I setup at the local rugby tavern and asked the players to not kick in my direction. Pretty impressive view through 23 km of atmosphere.
C8, 2000 mm, Canon 5D2, Magic Lantern raw video 3x crop.
Now here is the video itself. Watch toward the end for 3 green flashes and a hint of a blue flash. Thank you, Colin!
