Rare Event: Moon Changing Color

Rare Event: Moon Changing Color

That was a full moon day. I really astonished to see the colors of the moon. The moon was changing its color continuously in the evening. In the first photo, I found the silvery glow of the moon in the blue sky just after the sunset. After that, it was changed into purple. Then, its color was changed into blue within a few second.  And then it turned into a faded orange color that was near to the natural glow of the moon.

But, in naked eye, I couldn’t see this event of changing color. I, only, observed, that the glow of the moon was not like the same that we see daily. I kept capturing the photos of the moon by pressing the shutter, continuously. After that, when I saw those photos on the laptop, I found these four different colors of the moon. The color of the moon was not edited by any photo editing software.  I just edited the clarity and exposure of the photo by LR to make it presentable.

After watching these rare colors of the moon, I googled its cause. It is said that in the evening when the moon is on the horizon, it has to pass through many atmospheric layers. And by that time, the pollution level is high in the city. Hence, its spectrum is scattered through the air molecules of the atmosphere and creates a different color in our eyes. To know more about it, you can check this article on reference.com.

The rare event of moon’s color change is my entry for this week’s #WPC- Rare.

Actually, Subhash, I felt little bit of hesitation to share it. I thought people may not believe it and they will think, it’s a Photoshop work. After searching lots of photos and article about this colour changing, I finally believed in it and decided to share it in this blog. But, this colour changing was not identified in naked eye.

I could sense that as you talk of reference.com, it is ought to come as people are very judgemental and jump to conclusions. In fact we also requested in our photography group to capture the feat to all who can do it. Thank God you went ahead and posted it and with a good detailed description. Well done once again 🙂

Yes, it is.
This is also first time experience for me. But, I couldn’t see it in naked eye. Zooming of the lens captured this colour change.

🙂 I’m a Moon Landing Geek (unashamedly!) And I’ve never seen these colours before, I guess the Horizon acts as natural filters? A great Post.

Thank you, for stopping by and sharing your views. Yes, horizon and pollution both were responsible to scatter moon light in different colors.
