Red Moon

There is a truly gorgeous incarnadine moon out tonight over Austin, just short of full. The wind has also picked up very heavily today, which I find amusing because of the old folk rhyme,

Pale moon rains, red moon blows,
white moon neither rains nor snows.

This site gives the major reasons why a moon sometimes turns red.
