(White Moon): The Moon is the fifth-largest satellite in the Solar System, and by far the largest among planetary satellites relative to the size of the planet that it orbits (its primary). It is thought to have formed about 4.51 billion years ago, not long after Earth. The most widely accepted explanation is that the Moon formed from the debris left over after a giant impact between Earth and a hypothetical Mars-sized body called Theia. New research of Moon rocks, although not rejecting the Theia hypothesis, suggests that the Moon may be older than previously thought.


(Pink Moon): A supermoon is a full moon that happens when is closest to Earth in its orbit. The super pink moon is not really pink. It’s just called that because a pink North American wildflower called Phlox Subulata blooms in early April.


(Red Moon): The blood moon occurs during a total lunar eclipse. During a total lunar eclipse, Earth lines up between the Moon and the Sun. This hides the Moon from the sunlight. When this happens, the only light that reaches the Moon’s surface is from the edges of the Earth’s atmosphere. The air molecules from Earth’s atmosphere scatter out most of the blue light. The remaining light reflects onto the Moon’s surface with a red glow, making the Moon appear red in the night sky.


(Blue Moon): The moon can appear bluish, as it did in 1883 after the volcano Krakatoa erupted. Dust in the air acted as a filter, causing sunsets and the moon to turn green and blue all over the world, an event that NASA said is thought to have spawned the phrase ”blue moon.” Other events such as forest fires and dust storms can cause the moon to turn blue.


(Black Moon): A solar eclipse occurs when a portion of the Earth is engulfed in a shadow cast by the Moon which fully or partially blocks sunlight. This occurs when the Sun, Moon, and Earth are aligned. Such alignment coincides with a new moon, indicating the Moon is closest to the ecliptic plane.


LES SOLEILS, triptych, evokes the journey of the sun from its maximum splendor high in the sky to dusk on its way to the night. The light waves of the sun’s energy reflect like a mirror, bend like a prism or diffuse through the gases of the atmosphere, changing the color of the sky as the distance between the sun and the earth varies, creating rainbows, mirages and reflections.
