The Green Flash - A talk by Mike Frost
The Green Flash or Green Ray is a fleeting and beautiful phenomenon which has inspired the imagination of story-tellers from ancient Egypt to the present day. Meet the nerdish Aristobulos, hero of Jules Verne's "Le Rayon Vert", and David Abden, roguish hero of Winston Graham's "The Green Flash", as they try to explain the mysteries of the setting sun.
"... this ray has the virtue of making him who has seen it impossible to be deceived in matters of sentiment; at its appearence all deceit and falsehood are done away, and he who has been fortunate enough once to behold it is enabled to see closely into his own heart and read the thoughts of others..." (Jules Verne)
