Why don't we have color pictures of the moon?

Well, most people take black and white pictures because they want to be artsie. No color involved. There are also photos that look black and white because, a) its late so darker color of sky, b) the moon is usually white. There are colored pictures so just keep looking for them, at first it might seem black and white, but then you realize that it is actually colored, the sky is actually dark blue not black. Also, google colored moon pictures instead of just moon. You are more likely to get the result you want. Also, look for moon pictures with objects in them, because you will most likely find that the objects are colored. (Although they may look darker because it is night time.) Hope I helped.






But really my emotions when seeing this topic on crunchyroll went as above. (Keep on mooning???)

Well, every picture of the moon I've seen has only black, white, and gray. I was hoping for colors other than those.


Generally, that's because those are the three primary colors you'll find when photographing the moon. Besides the Harvest Moon (reddish) and Hunter's Moon (bluish), the moon mostly appears white/gray against a black nighttime sky if you photography it dead on.


When the night of the Harvest Moon coincides with the night of the equinox, it is called a "Super Harvest Moon". In 2010, the harvest moon happened only 5½ hours after the autumnal equinox, creating the first Super Harvest Moon since 1991.


Obviously, if you photograph the moon against something like a cityscape or during dusk, you'll pick up more of the surrounding colors:



But the moon will still only appear ash white/gray because that's what it is. Of course, that has to do with the mineral composition of the moon vs. something like Mars or Venus, sun light reflecting off the moon and through the troposphere, etc... If there are colorful mineral deposits on the moon, they are not visible to the eye at the moment.



If you were serious, I hope my previous reply and this one helped. Cheers.

I wish I could say this is the dumbest thread I have seen, but it's actually pretty par for the course.

Because no one ever taught you how to tie your shoes.
Either that or because Windows 8 got rid of the start button.
Any other reasons are arbitrary at best.
