All green flashes are mirages!

But when some slice of the sun lift up and turns green than it’s amazing!

The sun is sliced or even layered. The green flashes are first just above our star’s surface before appearing a few hundreds or even thousands miles above:

Atmospheric optics expert explains:

[quote_box_center]All green flashes are mirages. The setting sun’s rays bend as they slant across air layers at different temperatures. When the bending is strong enough we see multiple images. But the images are slices rather than complete suns. Some are the right way up and sink with the setting sun while others are inverted and climb upwards.[/quote_box_center]

Awesome!
