Is this moonORANGE ?

Yup. The moon appears orange because basically it is low in the sky and there are a lot of dust particles in the atmosphere. There is a lot more to it though.. so interesting......Awestruck by nature..

Sail Away

The Moon is no like a switch is turned on at night and lights up like a light bulb. The Moon lights up because it reflects the light from the sun. So, the other side of the moon is actually dark! Half light, half dark......=0

We ALWAYS see the SAME SIDE of the MOON because... As the moon rotates around the earth, it also rotates around its own axis at the same rate!!
