I've seen it 5 times-- 3 times from our hotel's 10th floor in Acapulco and
twice from Maui.  It is about as intense a green as I have ever seen-- on a
par with the infamous green laser pointers.

Happy Holidays!
 
We've been to the restaurant, and several other locations in the area on
occasion, and never got a green flash.  However, we did see one during a
sunset on the Pacific Ocean when we lived on Kwajalein, a coral atoll in the
middle of the Pacific.  It seemed to happen when the atmospherics were just
right, with a low cloud deck above the horizon.  We never saw one with a
clear horizon.

I thought about posting this link myself!  I have  been to the Green Flash
restaurant and have seen the green flash from there  on two occasions. As it
happens, it's the only times I've ever seen  it.

Hi,
Some of the best green flash photos I have seen  are in the Green Flash
Restaurant in San Diego:  
http://greenflashrestaurant.com/3.html

Surpassed of course only by  these:

http://www.google.com/search?q=green+flash+images&hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=
JjP&rlz=1R1GGHP_en___US443&prmd=ivns&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=jsnhUI7dKq
Kg2gW3xIAw&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=1584&bih=671&sei=lMnhUJaGGsSG2gWC8YDADA

i.e.,  do "Green Flash Images" in Google and select "images".

I have tried to  see and/or photograph the green flash from Kitt Peak and
from the coast in  California but conditions were never  right.

Thanks,

Howard
