I was saving this image for a special moment, so I decided to post it here, for me it was my best moon image of last year. The Moon is usually seen in subtle shades of gray or yellow The different colors are recognized to correspond to real differences in the chemical composition of the lunar surface. The blue tones reveal areas rich in ilmenite, which contains iron, titanium and oxygen, mainly titanium, while the orange and purple colors show regions relatively poor in titanium and iron. The white / gray tones refer to areas of greater exposure to sunlight. Moon trips have already been guided through similar images.
