What are the dark colored regions of the moon?
The dark colored areas of the moon's surface are referred to as "maria", the Italian and Latin word for "seas". Long before the arid nature of the moon's surface was known, the early observers of the moon interpreted these areas as oceans on the moon, and referred to them accordingly.
And as for the light areas, they have always been (correctly) interpreted as mountain ranges, and named accordingly.

The moon is gray, but it can appear different from earth. The surface is covered in rocks and dust. Atmospheric conditions, reflections, or positioning can give the moon the appearance of being red, blue, yellow, or other hues. This is only an appearance though. The color of the moon itself remains …gray. (MORE)
The different colors or the moon are yellow, red, and white. These colors are due to the different lights and points of view from which we look at the moon. When it's directly overhead it looks white, while when it's rising or setting it looks yellow, or red. The differences in colors are due to lig…ht, and reflections from your eyes to the moon. (MORE)
Answer red Answer All colors have the potential to be dark, as there are ways to remove brightness (by layering black on top, in some cases). Dark colors are colors that are closer to black than to white.
The moon, like the Earth, is illuminated on one side by the sun, while the other side is dark.
Other then Pink Floyd, says who? :P Fact: There is no dark side of the moon.
The dark areas on the Moon are called lunar mare . its actually called MARIA PLEASE COMMENT
idk it looks gray in pictures i am in science right now learning stuff about moons well ta ta The moon is a canvas yellow and has a tint of grey.
Just like here on earth, the moon is light when the sun is shining on the surface and dark when it is not. The moon has a day and night just like on earth, except that days on the moon are much longer than here on earth.
The colors of the moon are redish-orange, snowey white, and red when there is an eclipse. And sometimes yellowish at night. Your probably wondering why is it those colors? Well the color differience is probably due to the skylight. All the sunlight is scattered which is why you seen the moon in the …day white but it's yellowish at night because the atmosphere doesn't have any sun light to scatter. (MORE)
The dark and relatively featureless lunar plains which can clearly be seen are called maria (Latin for "seas"). They were believed by ancient astronomers to be filled with water. They are now known to be vast solidified pools of ancient basaltic lava.
darkness is no specific colour, it is just a colour what you think makes you feel quite miserable
Colors do not exist without light.. Your eyes have rod cells and cone cells and only the cone cells can perceive color. However, in low light areas only rod cells are sensitive enough to be activated and they cannot perceive colour. This is a physiological interpretation to the question as color, a…s far as we know, is an animal perception to the differences in the frequency of light and may not be a universal perception. (MORE)
Half the moon is 'dark' at any one time. Every point on the moon isilluminated for roughly 50% of the time, as the first answer said.So there IS a dark side of the moon :). And it is very dark, sothat stars can be seen more clearly than anywhere on earth.
Dark-colored storms and eight moons is quite possible referring tothe planet of Neptune. Neptune is deemed to now be the planet thatis farthest away from the sun because Pluto was downgraded to adwarf planet.
Called maria I searched this in and it wasn't there so I found it in my book for you and me!
What are dark colored relatively flat regions of the moon's surface formed when interior lava filled large basins?
The lunar maria (singular: mare ) are large, dark, basaltic plains on Earth's Moon, formed by ancient volcanic eruptions. no that won't fit in my crossword _ _ _ _ a maria
The moon is covered in "seas," also known as "maria," each having a specific name. Here is a list of the major ones on the side of the moon we see: . Mare Nubium-Sea of Clouds . Mare Humorum-Sea of Moisture . Mare Imbrium-Sea of Rains . Mare Frigoris-Sea of Cold . Mare Serenitatis-Sea… of Serenity . Mare Tranquillitatis-Sea of Tranquility . Mare Crisium-Sea of Crises . Mare Foecunditatis-Sea of Fertility . Mare Nectaris-Sea of Nectar . Mare Vaporum-Sea of Vapor (MORE)
Dark regions on the surface of the moon are generally basalt flows. Basalt is a dark rock. The flows have been caused by rock melting due to heat generated by meteor impacts.
Half of the moon is always dark because there is no sunlight shining on that side. That is called the Dark Side of the Moon.
either the sun not showing on the moon, causing shadows/Shadows in holes where meteors hit and left craters where the sun does not hit.
No, because If we have a Full moon than the other side has a New Moon! Isn't that interesting? :)
The reason a new moon looks dark is that when you view a new moon, you are looking at the side of the moon not lit by the sun.
No part of the Moon is permanently dark. The "dark side" refers to the side that is away from Earth, that can't be seen from Earth.
The moon shines when the sun's rays are reflected off the surface and down to the Earth where it is percieved by anything with working eyes. If there is an eclipse of any kind the moon will not shine.

Do you have mrs swartzentruber for science? Cuz if u do I have the answer! Meet me in the small commons by where you put your lunch trays!
The Moon Is dark because the sun light reflects on it so when the sun"s light does not hit the moon it is going to be a dark moon

Actually, there isn't a large clump of dark colored rocks on the moon. The dark parts of the side of the moon that we see, are actually craters that are hundreds of thousands of years old, caused by meteorites crashing into the moon.
in the novel and comic sentinel prime and megatron go to cybertron and rebuild it in the movie megatron damages sentinel prime then optimus kills megatron then sentinel prime

You're asking the wrong question. You should ask: Does Transformers Dark of the Moon have a plot? ;-) The answer is, it does, but barely. (spoilers) It turns out there are a number of transformers inactive on the moon, refugees from the initial conflict between the autobots and the decepticons. On…e of them is Sentinel Prime, who has invented a teleportation device. He has sides with the Decepticons because they're interested in teleporting the whole transformers home world to earth. There's a huge battle in Chicago, the autobots win, Optimus Prime destroys Megatron and Sentinel Prime, losing an arm in the process. Oh, and Sam gets the girl. (MORE)
Light from the sun is reflected off the moon making it visible in the dark.
The moon is not dark all the time. It is dark in a phase called a "new moon." But it only temporarily lasts.

You see, that part is the side of the moon that isn't facing the sun. Since it isn't facing the sun, no light touches it. Thus, it looks dark, considering the moonlight is really a reflection of sunlight that bounces of the moon.

Actually no. Because we cannot see the back side of the moon. But it is not always in dark. Sun can shine on it too
You have to pay 80 Microsoft points for xbox. I don't know about ps3, I don't play it. On ps3 you have to buy it from the playstation store. hes an add on.

There is a 3 killstreak, where you can activate an orbital beacon. A 5 killstreak, where you jam the enemy's abilities. And a 7 killstreak, where everyone on your team (including yourself) gets an overshield.
The only way we can study distant parts of the universe is through photons emitted from those regions. By definition, if it is "dark" then we cannot study it. W can only study its interactions with light that we can see.
There is no dark side, the moon is similar in colours all over its surface.
Well, the dark side of the Moon is where it is nighttime, not the"far" side. Like on Earth, nighttime on the Moon is always movinground and around the globe. . When it is night time on the moon and we can see it, it'scalled a New Moon. . When it is daytime on the moon and we can see it, it's c…alled aFull Moon. So, the part of the Moon that is dark or nighttime is very cold . .. say about -238 degrees, F. The part of the Moon that is indaytime is hot. There is no atmosphere on the Moon to hold in heatat night, or filter the Sun's heat during the day. (MORE)
A quarter moon. What we call "full" moon is really only half of the moon shining, so if you take away half of a half, you get a quarter. When people say, "It's a quarter moon," there should only be half of a "full" moon showing.
Yes. A formal definition of "Dark of the moon" is: 1. The period of about a week at the time of a new moon when the moon's light is absent from the sky. 2. A period when the moon is not shining or when it is obscured
The dark stuff on the moon is just darkness. It's just because the sun is not lighting that part up.Or is that what you're talking about? Edit : I think the question refers to the "maria" or "seas". These are nothing to do with water as was once thought. They are the remains of ancient volcanic acti…vity. They are lava flows. (MORE)
Today is the autumnal equinox. It is the last day of sunlight at the north pole for 6 months.

The color of the moon during the day is faint and white surroundedby the blue of the sky while at night it is bright yellow.
