30 Space Conspiracies That People Just Can’t Get Over

Our Moon will Turn Green

11. Our Moon will Turn Green

In the spring of 2016, many rumors started that the moon would soon turn green due to the alignment of planets. This was supposed to occur on April 20 and then again on May 29, making it happen for the first time since 1596.

Sure, the moon could appear to be green, but the bottom line is that it would never fully turn a different color. For example, a sunset can turn red, pink, and orange, but it’s only because sunlight is scattered through different paths of light.

The moon turning green is very similar to this idea, making it untrue that the moon will realistically turn green.
