Blued moon

The moon looks blue in this photo thanks to the recent dust pollution
in Tehran, Iran. Originated from large deserts of the Middle East,
sandstorms carrying micrometer size dust particles hit several Middle
Eastern countries including Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iraq and Iran.
Scientists believe that the recent unprecedented sandstorms that have
slowed down the everyday activities in many countries of the region,
happen once every 150 years.
