Colors of the Moon!
Always fascinating to observe or Image Lunar Surface, sharing an Image(heavily Cropped to show the area of interest) Mare Tranquillitatis.
This mare has a slight bluish tint relative to the rest of the Moon and stands out quite well when color is processed and extracted from multiple photographs. The color is likely due to higher metal content in the basaltic soil or rocks.
