The moon is not grey as you think!
So what is the true color of the moon?
If you had to pick a single hue, it would probably be gray. But actually the moon is multicolor!
As shown in this picture, the moon has different colors. There are light-gray lunar highlands, dark-gray lunar seas, and miles and miles of gray moondust everywhere. Yet the Moon is not monochromatic. Astronomers have long known that the Moon’s terrain is actually rich in subtle color.
Of course astrphotographer Teodorescu boosted the natural colors of the Snow Moon using Photoshop and added to his picture:

The different colors corresponds to another mineral composition of the Moon. Blue denotes areas rich in titanium, while orange is titanium poor. Pink traces iron-poor, aluminum-rich feldspars found in the lunar highlands.
