YGWV, but the light of the Red Moon is bathed in red, not silver. At least that is how it appears to those not deep in the Red Goddess' secrets.

The name of the Silver Shadow is taken from the mystical light of the Red Goddess, which is called the "Silver Shadow". It is invisible to all but the Select. Unless your players are a bunch of Dark Moon illuminates, I'd say it is a reddish light for them - even directly underneath the Red Moon.
