Apparently, the Moon's apparent color depends a lot on Sun angle, an affect that was reported by the Apollo astronauts, IIRC.

Don't hold this against me if I'm not 100% correct.<br /><br />The Latin word lunaticus means "moon-struck" and in ancient times the moon was thought to induce insanity in people.
