I didn't even know this term and had never seen the moon set over the horizon before. I just saw it 2 nights in a row and it was spectacular.

Happened to be up at 3:30 am and noticed the big bright orange moon low over the ocean horizon. I watched for 20 minutes or so, and saw it sink majestically into the waves. I don't know why I've never seen it before. This was over the Atlantic in Portugal . Did anyone else see it?

We live on the Pacific but it's usually cloudy so rare to see the moon at all.

There's a lot of "stuff" in the atmosphere right now that will seem to give color to the moon. Suspended dust from the Sahara streaming west across the Atlantic, smoke from Siberian wildfires streaming east across the Pacific, manmade air pollutants suspended over cities, warming water vapor over the tropics, etc. And, the closer to the horizon the moon (or sun) get, the more you are viewing it through all that "stuff".

I've also seen it a few times and it looked just incredible.
