General Purpose Moon Topic
« on: May 03, 2012, 03:32:11 PM »
As it is we have a thread by James from 2010 warning people about the Super Harvest Moon crisis of the same year. This thread has been of great value in alerting people to the potential dangers of exposure to Moonlight, but I think it would be good if we put together a year-round, general purpose sticky-topic. This would contain elements of the thread above, as well as a list of studies and sources that show the dangers of Moonlight exposure, and links to sites where one can track the Moon's intensity.


I am opening this thread so people can post suggested links, useful resources, and anything else they feel is relevant. I already have a few bits put together, but it's possible that others have knowledge of information which I have not come across.


Please note that this thread is for constructive submissions regarding the proposed topic only! It is not for debating or contesting whether or not Moonlight is harmful, or anything else of that nature. Please consider this a warning; I will be moderating this thread quite strictly, and I ask other mods to do the same.

Quote
This month's full moon is due to be about 16 percent brighter than average. In contrast, later this year on Nov. 28, the full moon will coincide with apogee, the moon's farthest approach, offering a particularly small and dim full moon.

Though the unusual appearance of this month's full moon may be surprising to some, there's no reason for alarm, scientists warn. The slight distance difference isn't enough to cause any earthquakes or extreme tidal effects, experts say.

However, the normal tides around the world will be particularly high and low. At perigee, the moon will exert about 42 percent more tidal force than it will during its next apogee two weeks later, Rao said.

Should be lovely to look at, even if deadly!
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

He was probably referring to the next true supermoon. This is just a "bigger-and-brighter-than-normal" moon which usually ends up being called a supermoon just the same.

Don't jump to any conclusions.  There's a difference between recovering from an illness and being immune to it.  Further experimentation myst be performed.

Thanks guys! Anyone else have any other good sources on the harmful effects of the Moon? Traditional remedies, perhaps? I'm putting some bits together, so hopefully I can have this done by tonight. It can of course be amended and augmented after it's been posted.

Etymology is good. Check the meaning of moonstruck or lunatic for example.

Moonstone provides more clues.
Quote from: http://www.langantiques.com/pages/gemstone-information/moonstone
The Romans, from about 100 A.D, used moonstone in jewelry. They believed that the stone was formed from the light of the moon.

Quote from: http://www.all-that-gifts.com/se/moonstone.html
Moonstone was very popular with the Romans, who thought it was formed out of moonlight, also used in Roman jewelry since 100 AD.



The Romans were very worried about moonlight and its harmful effects on men, believing it solidified to form ethereal rocks.

Regarding sickness, the best results are had like this.
This turns up real life documented cases.

What we are about to experience is the 'flower moon'.

Quote from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flower_moon
A Flower moon is a traditional name for the first full moon of May. Other names are the corn planting moon, and the milk moon. According to the National Geographic "Hare moon" is another name

Below is a list of moon names so as you can accurately warn people using the correct moon terms.

  • January - Wolf moon
  • February - Snow moon
  • March - Storm moon
  • April - Growing moon
  • May - Flower moon
  • June - Mead moon
  • July - Hay moon
  • August - Corn moon
  • September - Harvest moon
  • October - Hunter's moon
  • November - Beaver moon
  • December - Winter moon

You should also probably be aware that there is a hollow moon theory.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hollow_Moon

That the discovery of life on the moon by Sir John Hershel (A super-famous Astronomer) seems to have been covered up.
A series of 6 articles published by the New York Sun newspaper cover this.

From your last link:

"Meta-analyses have revealed that apparently significant results are likely to be statistical anomalies rather than indicative of a real effect."

"Apparent positive findings have tended to be inconclusive, contradicted by other studies, or shown to be the result of statistical errors."

Question:
If Homeopathy is taking something harmful and diluting it then absorbing it and thus being healed by it.  Like symptoms to cure like symptoms.

So, since Moonlight always is diluted during non-full moons and cloudy nights, would it be prudent to absorb as much moonlight as possible during those nights to ensure you can be cured of moonlight exposure during super moon nights?

I'm glad to see renewed attention being given to harmful moon rays. I believe the primary misconception about moon rays is that when people have mild, limited, or even extended short-term exposure and don't die, they conclude that moonlight is harmless. The effects on most people may not be as apparent or as immediate as say, a sunburn, but in some cases it is. Here is a post I made about a study showing that some people are prone to seizures from exposure to moonlight.

The moon is often used to great effect in music, literature, and other art to symbolize central themes.  For example, in the Pink Floyd songs "Brain Damage" and "Eclipse," the moon represents insanity and the dark side of human nature, respectively.  It's interesting to note that the symbolism is normally of something negative.

Seriously, Saddam?  Since when does Pink Floyd represent "normal" symbolism in music?  Compare some more popular moon themed songs:

I'm also leaving aside stuff related to the existence of life on the Moon, as I feel it wouldn't really fit in with the rest of the thread. However, it is a topic I intend to return to at some point.
