Robert Scarola photographed what I believe is a yellow flash.

The night after I thought for sure I was going to get my first photo of a green flash but I photographed what Robert described in his photo as "two suns" or a yellow flash.

Andrew T. Young has a fascinating article on the web about green flashes. He wrote, “Green flashes are not always green; they can be yellow, green, blue, or even violet. But green is the hue seen most often.”

Mr. Young also has some unsolved green flash mysteries. Perhaps you can  help solve one of them. Here is the link: http://mintaka.sdsu.edu/GF/unsolved.html

Here is one of my favorite green flash photos, taken by Craig Tooley. It shows a double green flash.

One of the myths about green flashes is that it is good luck when you see one. Let's expand that to yellow flashes too!

Thanks to Robert and Craig for allowing me to share their photos with you here. To see much more of Craig's nature photography, his website is: www.ruffimage.com
