There's a full moon tonight and according to folklore it is called the Sprouting Grass Moon because it shines down on the new grasses of northern spring. Go outside after dark and look at the ground. Does the grass look green or blue? This will explain the possibilities as to why it appears as it does and how your eye tricks you to think moonlight is blue:

Also pretty cool to see the true colors that lie behind what we think is a grey moon. With the right photogrphic enhancement, one can bring out the subtle colors that are there, but not clear to the naked eye. How cool would it be to have our moon look lilke this in the nights sky?
