It was the biggest moon I could get to date. The moon is usually seen in subtle shades of gray or yellow. The different colors are recognized to correspond to actual differences in the chemical composition of the lunar surface. The blue hues reveal areas rich in ilmenite, which contains iron, titanium and oxygen, mainly titanium, while the orange and purple colors show relatively poor titanium and iron regions. Shades of white / gray refer to areas most exposed to sunlight. Moon trips have already been guided through similar images.
