The story

Does our Moon really look like this? Well, almost…. This is what happens when you take a picture of the Moon, average the color data, and then saturate the color in the image. So in a way, yes, those colors “came” from the Moon (I didn’t paint them!!!), and the only difference is that they’ve been exaggerated. This was one of my very first astroimages back in 2008, and I still get questions about whether the colors are real or painted.
