    Hey Guys . . . the moon appearing to look huge and a vibrant orange or red is very normal and easily explained. Google “Why does the moon look huge and orange” and you will get solid scientific explanations.

    Basically it can ‘appear’ huge and orange or red just as it rises over the horizon at different times of the year or if there is large amounts of pollen or pollution in the air. It is an optical illusion. A couple hours later it ‘appears normal’ again simply because it has risen above the thicker/polluted atmosphere.

    . . . . . I have no idea about 777’s triangles . . . . . . I ran outside to look last night and saw nothing unusual. I live in the eastern part of the U.S. (Virginia).

    You're probably right.. Sigh.
    Still I like my idea of dimensional shifting better.

    Have a great day today

    Thank you for this information, it makes sense; I even mentioned in my OP that I had a very dirty pink sky at sunset, so was already leaning towards that thought.
    Thanks again for the explanation.

    I remember when I was a child an old person told me that the red or orange Moon means that it will be windy in the next day, and this turned to be true every time. Today I don't think we can use this because the chemtrails altered atmosphere to such extent that even meteorologists can't predict anything. Now almost every time when I see coloured sky I think, omg they sprayed some nasty thing again.
