Green Flashes depend on the amount of humidity in the air.  It is
caused by the filtering out of all the colors of light except the
green due to the fact the air is heavily compressed at sea level, and
happens just as the sun disappears below the horizon.  Being a
sailor, I have seen it hundreds of times and living in the South
Pacific also gives me an advantage as we have days with no clouds..
Many times however, the clouds build on the horizon just as the sun
is dropping and you will not see the flash...

For sure it is not a myth, and physics will tell you that you cannot
see it if you are at higher altitudes as the air is thinner there.
