The colourful Moon

Different minerals on the surface of the Moon exhibit colours that we don’t normally see except through a telescope or thanks to the sensitivity of a camera. We took this shot during the recent full Moon and the colours at clearly visible. Blue marks deposits of Titanium and orange shows where Iron is present. This is one of our favourite photos we’ve taken so far this year.
