(Manzanita, Oregon) - One magnificent natural oddity caught twice on camera on the Oregon coast in recent weeks: the famed green flash at sunset showed up on the north coast in October and November and BeachConnection.net was lucky enough to be in the right place in the right time.

A large tradition on the coast is for crowds to gather at big vantage points, in what seems increasing numbers, to watch the setting sun - provided it's showing itself on the often hazy shoreline of Oregon. If you listen to those around you, more often than not you'll hear someone chattering about the "green flash" - an interesting phenomenon where you see a kind of green shape or blob around the sun just as it dips below the horizon.
