The moon is orange! Don't miss it! Go to your window to see it. It's beautiful!!!
Bummer i forgot to look ;(
In the news this morning
A little cloudy here last night but, I could watch it from my bedroom window.
I hope to be around for the next one.
It was really something . The moon was at its closest to the Earth. And the fact we could see the red glow on the moon means the pollution levels of our atmosphere still allow that.
Pollution? So that's why My moon was not Red.
Actually the moon turns red for the same reason the sky does during the sunset. The light from the sun goes through the atmosphere at an angle and scatters. It filters out most of the blue light in the color spectrum, and what we're left with is red and orange colors. That light hits the moon and reflects back to earth, which is then the light we are seeing. Red moons are ancient, it was considered a bad omen in the biblical days. It was neat though. I actually envisioned the moon being larger last night though.
Had an American tale/somewhere out there moment with shy guy. We both looked at the moon at the same time
It was cloudy here, we didn't see anything
The size perception of the moon have to do with the angle of the Earth. When it's on or near the horizon it will look much larger than directly over head.
It isn't only about perception. The orbit is, say, elliptical. Now, it is at its closest to us.
