January 2013 full moon as captured by EarthSky Facebook friend Lance Bullion in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Lance must have caught the moon low in the sky, when it looks more orange in color. Why does it look orange? Because, when it’s low in the sky, you’re seeing the moon through more atmosphere than when it’s overhead.
