Why does the moon look yellow sometimes?



  1. 0 Votes

    During the day the moon looks white because the suns rays scatter much of the light it is reflecting. During the night it may look yellow because you can see the light more directly. The moon looks orange sometimes too when it is near to the horizon. This means that you are you are seeing it not only through the atmosphere above you but also all the dust and particles hanging in the air just above the ground.
