The Green Ray (Le Rayon vert) is the twenty-third book in Jules Verne's Extraordinary Voyages series. The name of the book comes from a meteorological optical phenomena that occurs around sunrise or sunset when a distinct green spot is visible above the rim of the sun's disk. In the book, Helena Campbell is due to be married to a man she dislikes. As a way of putting off the impending marriage, she tells her uncles that she cannot possibly marry until she has seen the the green ray. Her uncles agree and she arranges to go on a trip to Scotland in hope of seeing the green phenomena with her uncles as chaperone. There, she meets Oliver Sinclair who joins their group, and later she and Oliver go off to find what they are looking for - in more ways than one.
