  Golden Gate Green Flash - Video


Golden Gate Flash

As seen from Berkely, California for a few days every spring and fall, the sun sets between the towers of the Golden Gate Bridge.

On November 4, '05 a thin layer of warm air close to the ocean helped produce an additional spectacle - this inferior mirage green flash.

Paul Kamen (site) caught it on video with a Canon S2-IS at 432 mm (35mm lens equivalent).
