A red moon rising

An orange glow highlights our closest celestial neighbor, the moon, as it rose last week above the horizon in Palmetto.

The dim light of the full moon was filtered by the earth's atmosphere, allowing only the red and orange spectrums of light to show forth to us earthlings.

As the moon rose higher in the sky, the reddish orange glow transitioned to a brilliant white, casting shadows on the ground even in the darkness of night.
