19 May 1959, Prof. Nikolai Barabasjow about the color of the moon.

The moon is not uniformly yellow in color, as some scholars believe, but there are red, brown, yellow, green, blue and other shades, Prof. Nikolai Barabasjow, director of the astronomical observatory of Kharkov, has stated. The professor also rejects the theory that the moon surface would be covered with volcanic ash and cosmic dust. According to him, on the lunar surface, there is a layer of grit of rock that is only a few centimeters thick.

 Original text plus clipping in Dutch:

De maan is niet egaal geel van kleur, zoals sommige geleerden geloven, maar er komen rood, bruin, geel, groen, blauw en andere tinten voor, zo heeft prof. Nikolai Barabasjow, directeur van het astronomisch observatorium van Charkow verklaard. De professor verwerpt ook de theorie dat het maanoppervlak bedekt zou zijn met vulkanische as en kosmische stof. Volgens hem ligt op het maanoppervlak een laag gruis van gesteente van lenige centimeters dik.
