A red moon rising. An orange glow highlights our closet celestial neighbor, the moon, as it rose recently above the horizon in Palmetto. The dim light of the full moon was filtered by the Earth's atmosphere, allowing only the red-and-orange spectrums of light to show forth to us earthlings. As the moon rose higher in the sky, the reddish-orange glow transitioned to a brilliant white, casting shadows on the ground even in the darkness of night.
