    It's like that comic was targeted right at me. I'm into amateur astronomy, and I just got a new Roadster. :eek:

    When we were in Hawaii in January, we joined in the local ritual of gathering on the beach to watch for the green flash at sunset. Fortunately, our Roadster was secure in our garage. Also, I think the ritual had more to do with drinking Mai Tais than astronomical curiosity.

    Hi TEG,
    Thanks for the Wiki link. Like most natural phenomenons, it makes sense once explained!

    By the way, TM acknowledged the cartoon on their Facebook page yesterday.

    Greetings,
    David
