As promised, here are but just a few of the sunset sequences. I have many more. Even more have been discarded. None of these photos have been
edited, nor cropped. I'm posting links to my media portal rather than imbedding photos, as they are fairly large.

I often try to frame the sun photos in coconut palm trees, so if I'm lucky enough to catch a green flash, it is framed in something semi-interesting,
rather than just a green spot on a flat horizon. Today looks pretty clear, so far. If it remains clear, I'll go out on the bay this evening --
just for you and in the interest of science -- and take photos from the dock over the sea......... no trees.
I have been indulging my green flash hobby for the better part of four years. I have never, EVER seen anything unknown near the sun nor anywhere
else. I'll often take as much as 100 photos in a single sitting, and discard most of them. I'm acutely aware of lens flares, cloud diffractions
and even sun shining though holes in thin, distant cloud layers.
Y'know, I don't usually tell people when I'm starring or flagging, but in this case, I'm breaking my rule. Giving you a flag, as I'd like your
thread to be visible/active for anyone who wants to see clear sky sun photos. Plus, I think you went to a good deal of trouble to create your OP,
even though I disagree with the premise, and that's flagworthy also.
Hopefully will add to these photos tonight or tomorrow, weather permitting.
