Yeah but as I already explained, 'they' wouldn't describe it as 'green', especially if EVERYTHING they see is green.
You need to reread the OP's question. To we humans, a moon reflecting the "green range" wavelength of light, would indeed be interpreted as green by us. It could even be assumed that the inhabitants have no way of receiving EM radiation with their senses.

Eldar are not human.
Eldar lore described it as green... Not a human account.
Another poster posed "maybe they can only see in green."
Hence the explanation.
Your argument is invalid.

OP's question:

"Or wouldn´t it matter one bit, as when "WE" take in factors of the spectrum of light "OUR" eyes can see, plus the chemical nature of an atmosphere like Earths.
The moon would always appear to be whitish in the light it reflects down to Earth?"

I get it, the OP asks how we would see it through our own atmosphere. We're missing several crucial bits of information though from the perspective of the Eldar who described the 'green' moon.

What atmosphere does the Eldars home world have?
What type of star do they orbit? What light does it emit?

And possibly most importantly: What does an Eldar see as "green", since they aren't human?

So here we go again. Recap:

- Eldar are not human.
- Eldar lore described it as green... Not a human account.
- You posed "maybe they can only see in green."
- Hence the explanation:

If Eldar could only see in the 500-560nm range, they wouldn't describe everything as 'green', since that would be completely useless...

"Hey pass me that thing..."
"The green one?"
"No, the green one."

Get it yet?

Do you always get this upset when you are incorrect? Lol

How am I supposed to know how upset you are about it? I suppose, regardless, the answer is no; I don't get upset when I'm wrong about something. You shouldn't either. And hey, now that your ill logic has been explained, you'll be less likely to make the same error in the future.

... Or are you projecting? You somehow still think I'm incorrect? And upset? Did you still not understand why "maybe they can only see green." makes no sense when they're describing something as green? Consider

"(in) Eldar lore it is said that their maiden world had three moons and one of them where Greenish"
"maybe they only see in green?" *derp* Hobo

You seem to be a very sensitive man. Easily offended, quick to throw insults. I hope you can find patience in life.

Pro tip: That voice in your head when you read a post, isn't actually the voice of the poster. The lack of tone or infection is not an invitation to choose your own; that would be projecting. Occasionally, these projections will paint a better picture of yourself than of the poster. An in-person conversation would leave you with a completely different impression.

For future reference, my tone is usually somewhere between pleasant interest and cold sarcasm.
