For those unfamiliar with the tropics, there is a legendary moment when, just before the sun sets, there appears a "green flash" as the star disappears below the horizon. It is rare to see, so much so that early Caribbean tribal religion thought it to be a portent of great change.
This is as close as I ever got to a photo of it. As you can see, a filter had to be used to mute the sunset some.
