My former "Mechanics of Solids" lecturer pronounced it as "More-re-ay". Eversince then, I followed his pronounciation.

Oxford dictionary: moiré /'mwa:reI/ a. (of silk) watered; like watered silk in appearance.

So it is pronounced as "mua-rei" (or "mua-ray"). ;)

My family and associates always pronounce it as

more-ray (moi-raae) with a slightly extended ae sound at the end.
