I want to pose this question to the community here to
see what people really think and believe about the Moon.
Do you believe the Moon is grey or filled with colors that
we can't see that well from Earth?

I would say it's white. What is white? A combination of all the colours. So in my opinion those dust particles have all colours and mix together on a small scale so we see them as white.

I'm still not sure the moon is really real. I saw some video of a guy who took his camera and got closer to the sun with it than he did to the stop sign across a field from him.

From all the footage I have seen from amatuer astronomers the moon has as many colors as earth does,and a crystal like covering

What colour is it at night?
What colour is it during the day?

I'm sure it is varied, but it would depend on when you see it, and not via telescope or B&W photographs.

Many elements are many colours. I'd imagine it would be as different there as things are here, under varying circumstances.

Ayres Rock for example, over the course of a single day.

It entirely depends on lighting conditions.

My best guess would be titanium-white - Info

Fun fact; Titanium Dioxide is the compound which makes things white (plastics, toothpaste, paints and so forth)

The consensus is the Moon has some subtle hues hiding out amidst all the grey. I've pulled three examples to show them off:

This is from a raw image (link to image source) and the colours saturated using Lightroom.

I can already hear the cries of "CGI! Photoshop! Fakey fake!" To counter it here's a 1967 illustration (no photoshop or Lightroom back then) showing similar colours:

Here's a NASA example.

Moon's cheese bro. Everyone knows cheese is yellow.

Nice. I'd imagine it would probably be more colorful if it had an ozone layer surrounding it. Having said that, imagine what Earth would look like if meteorites didn't burn up in the atmosphere on their way in. Were we able to survive without one, we'd have craters everywhere and fear for our lives every time a meteor shower came through.

Oh, the color... It looks light brown, grey, and bluish. Loved the high res shot that allowed me to zero in. Anytime in the past when I thought about the moon, I always felt like a visit there would be like looking through a black and white camera.

You can view the moon in Google Maps, too. I'd imagine this has been talked about before, but what the hey is this? I just found it while browsing around up there.

Faults in the emulsion from when the film was developed in lunar orbit.

the moon is colored, but its very hard to see that color with amateur instrumentation
i think one of the apollo missions actually found orange dust in the moon

Apollo 17, and the dust turned out to be glass micro-beads (they initially thought it could be rust). Various Apollo astronauts have described browns, bluish-grey, green and purple, but it is very much dependent on the sun angle. Under full illumination it becomes more difficult to distinguish the colours apart from grey.

Did you honestly just type that you aren't sure the moon is real?

Ashes. It's the color of ashes after it cooled off from it's molten period and was hit by billions of years of solar radiation.
