Moon Overlay

July 18th, 2008

Here is a compilation of photos overlaid one another to show the color change and movement of the moon. The reason for the moon appearing orange in color is caused by the scattering of light in the atmosphere. When the moon is near the horizon, the moonlight must pass through much more atmosphere than when the moon is directly overhead. Dust and other particles also have a role in changing the color of the moon for that small period of time.
