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.

MOON STAMPS BECAUSE SENDING LETTERS IS APPARENTLY STILL A THING

This makes no sense.
Moon Stamps? Is there even anyone up there to get a letter if we sent one?

Via: GeekWire

Now you can moon your mail carrier … not in the scatological sense, but in the philatelic sense.

To celebrate tonight’s full moon, the U.S. Postal Service officially released its circular moon stamp today. One stamp sells for $1.20, and provides “Global Forever” postage for sending a 1-ounce letter to most countries around the world. (Technically, they can go to any country that’s reachable by First Class Mail International service.)

STUDY LINKS FULL MOON TO VIOLENT TRANSFORMATION

Via: The Australian

WEREWOLVES belong in fiction, but researchers have demonstrated an eerie spike in very violent behaviour during the full moon.

Australian experts looked at the cases of 91 patients who presented for treatment at the emergency department of Calvary Mater Hospital in Newcastle, NSW, all of whom were so violent they needed to be sedated or physically restrained to prevent them harming staff or themselves.

Of these 91 who were seen over a 12-month period, they found that 21 (23 per cent) presented when the moon was full – about double the number of cases seen during any of the other seven lunar phases.

LIONS MORE LIKELY TO EAT PEOPLE AFTER A FULL MOON

Other predators, such as wolves, may also be at their most dangerous when the moon starts to wane.

The discovery, from an African study of 500 lion attacks, could explain the full moon’s place in folklore as a harbinger of evil or disaster, and its association with werewolves and vampires.

Scientists studied records of nearly 500 lion attacks on Tanzanian villagers between 1988 and 2009.

In more than two thirds of cases, the victims were killed and eaten. The vast majority of attacks occurred between dusk and 10pm on nights when the moon was waning and providing relatively little light.
