YOU GOT LUCKY

GREEN FLASH WINNER

 

Regardless of the point count if you should be fortunate enough to see the rare green flash you are a "winner". According to an old Scottish legend those who view the green flash will never err in matters of love.

Since ancient times people have marveled at this unusual phenomenon. The flash occurs because sunlight spreads out in air of increased density just like water vapor creates a rainbow. For the flash to occur refracted light must lose color at both ends of the spectrum. The violet-blue-green end of the spectrum is usually filtered out or scattered by air molecules as the sunlight travels a long low path through the atmosphere. Sometimes only the violet-blue is filtered leaving the green part and we see a green flash.

The concept for this sunset rating system is the product of the fertile imagination and the creative mind of a friend named John. Each time John would take friends out on his boat to watch the sunset he'd explain his "five point" rating system. Everyone enjoyed it so much and it seemed to add to the Sunset Ritual. The 10 point rating system used in this Florida Keys Sunset Scorecard evolved from the five point system.
