Capturing the "Green Flash" At Sunset

When the sun sets on the horizon, color is such that a green rim appears on the upper part of our star, with red counterbalancing on the bottom.  If you catch a glimpse of this green top-glow right when the sun dips below the horizon, the green seems isolated, producing this "green flash."
