WurzelDave - no, I have not heard of the blue flash. I have shot the red flash several times, which appears on the underside of the sun. The green flash is always above the sun

Superb shot, great timing, congrats on AC & VIP. Have you ever seen (the even rarer) blue flash?

To Delver - The Canon SX50 does zoom out to 50 X, or 1258mm. Incredible superzoom camera. Just have to keep it steady for those long shots, and be patient

I saw the green flash once in Hawaii and it is great but sure doesn't last long at all. Nice shot.

Very striking and far-in closeup. I presume the OOTB camera is not up to such a zoom, what telescope or supplemental tele did you attach it to?

I've seen still shots and videos of the green flash, but never been privileged to see the actual thing. Voted earlier, but came back to congratulate you on the AC!

Great timing! Another few seconds and it would be gone. The essential requirements: A long telephoto lens over the ocean and a quick eye.
