Thank you my friend Maj William W. 'Bill' Price for posting the NASA collage of images AKA Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) for November 11, 2020 entitled "The Colors of the Moon."
Image: Colors of the Moon - Image Credit & Copyright - Marcella Giulia Pace.

I particularly like the purple-tinted moon, the orange moons and the blue moons [A blue-colored moon is more rare and can indicate a moon seen through an atmosphere carrying larger dust particles]

Happy Veterans Day to one and all!

APOD Background
"Explanation: What color is the Moon? It depends on the night. Outside of the Earth's atmosphere, the dark Moon, which shines by reflected sunlight, appears a magnificently brown-tinged gray. Viewed from inside the Earth's atmosphere, though, the moon can appear quite different. The featured image highlights a collection of apparent colors of the full moon documented by one astrophotographer over 10 years from different locations across Italy. A red or yellow colored moon usually indicates a moon seen near the horizon. There, some of the blue light has been scattered away by a long path through the Earth's atmosphere, sometimes laden with fine dust. A blue-colored moon is more rare and can indicate a moon seen through an atmosphere carrying larger dust particles. What created the purple moon is unclear -- it may be a combination of several effects. The last image captures the total lunar eclipse of 2018 July -- where the moon, in Earth's shadow, appeared a faint red -- due to light refracted through air around the Earth. The next full moon will occur at the end of this month (moon-th) and is known in some cultures as the Beaver Moon.

Really like that one and his guitar is so mello that it makes the song very mello but upbeat.
