« What color is the Moon?

I have collected all my Full Moon shots that I have taken over the past 10 years. Of these shots I have selected all the shades of color that the Moon has taken in front of my lens and my eyes.
Our atmosphere gives different colors to our satellite (skattering) based on the height with respect to the horizon, based on the presence of veils or suspended dust. The appearance of the Moon also changes: low on the horizon the refraction compresses the lunar disk at the poles which appears as an ellipse.
I have chosen to present my full moons through a spiral arrangement that ends with a lunar eclipse. »
