Tuesday Green Flash and Planetary Parade

The sun looked pretty nice as I finished my after work bike ride today, (Tuesday) so Sandra and I hopped in the car and drove to where we could see the sun drop below the horizon. The sun almost set over a cruise ship, which would have been cool. We saw a great green flash, I'd say that on scale of one to ten, it was a ten.
Then as the sky began to darken, Jupiter and Mercury put on a nice display. If you live to the west of Bonaire and you read this soon enough, head outside after sunset and you'll see Mercury a little below and to the right of Jupiter. They are pretty close together tonight.
