Sarasota, Florida. Kai
Schreiber captured this I-Mir
flash May '05. A cue that a flash might occur was
the earlier 'Omega'
shape of the sun as shown in the inset (smaller scale than main
image). The distorted sun is part of the same mirage. Look also
at the spiky
'waves' on the horizon, these are probably not real but instead
are the unsteady edge of the mirage. Both effects presage a
green flash. Images ©Kai Schreiber,
