Is a rare marine sunset phenomenon known by many sailors but seen by few. It entails the last 15 – 20% of the setting sun before it sinks below the horizon. In the right conditions a bright apple green flash occurs. At sea waves and swells can block the vital moment so land vantage points offer more opportunities.
The best one I have seen occurred recently on the evening of February the 1st. from the R.M.Y.S. Harbour room just under Marcus Coppens’ left elbow at the moment he closed the Members Quarterly Meeting. Knowing what to look for I was perhaps the only one present to have seen it. Thanks Marcus.
