Green and BLUE Flash of the SUN : The Green Flash of the Sun is the result of atmospheric distortion of the Sun when it’s low on the horizon.  The photos in this gallery were taken with a focal length of 2200mm at Blind Pass between Sanibel and Captiva Islands, FL.  The atmosphere was unusually clear and allowed blue light to reach the camera.  More often particles in the atmosphere will filter out blue light and green is the last color seen in the flash.  A Blue Sun Flash is VERY rare.

Observatory Construction : In my 20s and 30s I built two observatories and two observatory telescope mounts (among a number of smaller portable telescopes and mounts).  The logistics of handling parts too large and heavy for one person to pick up are interesting.  The photos in this gallery will give you a feel for what those projects were like.
