WHY is the Moon sometimes orange?

The rays of sunlight are known to include all existing colors. The Moon reflects sunlight and redirects it to Earth. But light still needs to break through our atmosphere before it can reach human eyes.

On its way to Earth’s surface, sunlight is able to refract gases in the atmosphere, causing us to see the Moon in red, orange, or some other color when we look through a prism of sorts.
