This seems like the appropriate forum to post this in. Saw this phenomenon appear at sunset this evening, on the opposite horizon from the sun. Makes for a pretty cool sky!

Fascinating. I don't think I've ever seen that before.

Great shot, not too uncommon in Florida. Good job to capture the rays

Your answer is no and never heard of a Emerald Flash . HOWEVER there is the Green Flash given off by the sun at last seconds of sunset .

Thanks everyone. This is the first time I've ever seen this, but evidently it is somewhat common. Guess I need to be a little more attentive to the evening sky!

It might be a fairly common phenomenon (i e never seen it though) but that is a beautiful image nonetheless.

Definitely not Zodiacal light.
Looks like escaping last sun rays through the fenstra of clouds when horizon has mountains that doesn't allow visualization sun in last minutes before fully being set.
No mater what, A nice image of a memorable moment.

For those of you who have never seen them or can't decide for sure what they are ...... , here are plenty of pictures of so many different kinds you surely must have seen them before just not know what they were or even paying attention to the sun or sunset .

I think it's simply that people don't think to turn around and look in the opposite direction from a spectacular sunset or sunrise.

Nice work. I've caprured this effect a couple of times, but not as well as this.

Cheers,
Stephen
