Moon Tosses Out Green Yellow Orange and Red

About 10:30 p.m. on April 10, the Moon began to put on an unusual show and glow, tossing colors into the sky with each click of the camera! The orb started out looking like the (ABOVE) picture, with rings of green, yellow, orange, and red.

Then black clouds bringing rain broke the rings into splashes of colors reflected from the moon’s surface and into the surrounding sky (BELOW):

Finally, the entire sky seemed to get swallowed by the stupendous colors being tossed around, while to the far upper right of the moon could be seen a bright, star-like speck (BELOW).

Was the “speck” the Red Planet — Mars — adding its signature color to the spectacular array of reflection?
