    Yes. Orange.

    This is not a trick photo. This is the actual color of the moon tonight over the upper Midwest due to smoke high in the atmosphere from the wildfires in western Canada.

    Clear and bright here in Northeast Wyoming tonight, at 9:18 PM. I think I'll go sit in the hot tub and watch it for awhile.

    Thanks for sharing the picture, it's great.

    EDIT:
    So, 5 hours later, I can report the moon has had a corona ever since the sky has gone dark. There is a bit of an orange tinge to it, but nothing like what you are seeing.
