Can anyone explain how a moon can have a pink tinge.....it was about 12am last night, the moon was bright yellow but had a pink tinge to it. Now I had had a few drinks but not that many to start halluscinating

Could it be due to any forest fires within the province?

Hi!,

I think it has more to do with the ' lowness' of the moon at present which, when forced through the greater depth of atmosphere and combined with our terrestrial pollutants, allows the moonlight to be shifted over to the red side of things.

I remember a few 'Low' moons when I was Squatting Hulme in the late 80's , I recall it being almost orange at one partial eclipse and the earths atmosphere visibly showing as a brown edge to the darkness of the eclipse. The Nordic peoples called such a moon a Blud Moon (Blood Moon?) and drew portents from it.
