    does anybody know why the moon is a redish color?

    My wife called me to go outside to look at the moon and I saw it was a redish color. Does anybody know why?

    I have been accused of wearing these.

    Personally never seen it, but maybe a form of earthshine.a reflection of the sun off the planet earth... ?
