It seems like every picture of the moon I have seen is in black and white. And if you search Google Images for pictures of the moon, most of the pictures will still be in black and white.

So, why don't we have color pictures of the moon already? It's 2013.


"The photographs of the Moon, taken from space are the best true-color views of the Moon. That gray color you see comes from the surface of the Moon which is mostly oxygen, silicon, magnesium, iron, calcium and aluminum. The lighter color rocks are usually plagioclase feldspar, while the darker rocks are pyroxene. Most of the rocks that you can see are volcanic, and were extruded from the inside of the Moon during volcanic eruptions. Some rare rocks called olivine are actually green."
