After the eclipse, I leave here my contribution of January 22, 2019.
My first moon of the year, showing its peculiar characteristics. And always a pleasure to photograph it.

The Moon is usually seen in subtle shades of gray or yellow
The different colors are recognized to correspond to real differences in the chemical composition of the lunar surface.
The blue tones reveal areas rich in ilmenite, which contains iron, titanium and oxygen, mainly titanium, while the orange and purple colors show relatively poor titanium and iron regions.
