I've lived in the capital area my entire life and I've never seen the dome on the Capitol building anything but baby-puke green! This is the color it is suppose to be...the color God intended copper to be. It's just that the elements wreak havoc on the metal and, after a while, it gets snot green again (sorry about the verbiage, but you have to admit, while not very pleasant, it IS descriptive).

The picture could have been better but this is a video grab from my phone. I didn't want to be snapping pictures while driving down Capitol Street so I just held the phone up hoping I'd get something I could use.
