THE MOON’S “BLUE” LAST QUARTER PHASE EXPLAINED. HINT: IT’S NOT CHEESE RELATED.

Via: Space

As the moon moves around Earth in its monthly orbit, there are four points at which it is in exact geometry with the sun and Earth: new moon, first quarter, full moon, and last quarter.

These are the four points at which the Earth, moon and sun are in a straight line, or the sun and moon form a 90-degree angle as seen from Earth.

At new moon, the moon is between Earth and sun, so we are trying to see the moon’s dark side in front of the brilliant sun. We can never see the moon at new moon because of the bright sunlight, except on the rare instances when the moon is directly in front of the sun and we get a solar eclipse. Because of the tilt of the moon’s orbit, most of the time it passes either above or below the sun, but still close enough that it is lost in the sun’s glare.

DOES A FULL MOON AFFECT YOUR CHILD’S SLEEP? SCIENCE WEIGHS IN WHERE COMMON SENSE DOES NOT.

Via: CanTech

It’s a question posed since the first exhausted parents tried to deal with their Energizer bunny of a child, still up and still rambunctious at one o’clock in the morning – is my kid a werewolf?

Now with a recent study on how the lunar cycle might be affecting children’s behaviour we can finally announce the more or less definite results: not likely. The comprehensive study tracked the waking and sleeping habits of 7372 children aged nine to 11 from 12 countries around the world to see if their behaviour was affected by the full moon. Using accelerators strapped to the children’s waists to monitor movement, researchers were able to collect data on sleep duration, light-intensity activity, moderately vigorous activity and total sedentary time over a seven day period. Once the results were calculated and coordinated with the various phases of the moon, it was found that only sleep duration was affected by the lunar cycle -on average, children slept five minutes less when the moon is full, representing a one per cent reduction in sleep time.

REPORTS OF A 4-20 “GREEN MOON'” GO VIRAL, BUT ARE THEY TRUE? OR JUST SKUNKY DIRT WEED NONSENSE?

Duuuude!
Duuuude!

Via: Penn Live

The full moon on Wednesday, April 20, will not be green, despite several hoax reports making their way through social media.

In fact, the full moon this month will come on Friday, April 22. The hoaxers apparently went with April 20, which might also be referred to as 4-20, to include a street reference for marijuana in their joke.

One of the original hoaxers eventually went on to support his original, simple meme of a green-tinted moon with an elaborate, but totally false, explanation involving the alignment of the moon with Uranus. Even that alignment won’t happen.

INSANELY DETAILED 3-D GLOBE OF THE MOON SHOWS EVERY DIMPLE BECAUSE KEEPING TRACK OF YOUR MOON DIMPLES IS VERY IMPORTANT

Via: Wired

FOUR YEARS AGO, fresh out of graduate school at the Royal College of Art in London, Oscar Lhermitte stumbled across some high-resolution images of the moon. The images came from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mission, which launched in 2009, and they showed swaths of the lunar surface in extraordinary detail. Lhermitte, a designer who says he’s “obsessed with anything to do with science and astronomy,” began to wonder if he could use that data to create a three-dimensional model of the moon—i.e., a lunar globe.

SURFING AT NIGHT DURING A FULL MOON MAKES PERFECT SENSE BECAUSE SHARKS

“Night Riders” hit the surf under the light of the full moon as a huge swell rolls in from Cyclone Winston

During every full moon, at a usually busy beach, a group of ghostly figures congregate on the shore during the night.

They’re at Snapper Rocks on the Gold Coast for a unique experience – to ride the surf as it glows under the light of the moon, for surreal waves without the masses of daytime crowds.
