Yesterday (and not for the first time) I have witnessed the lie that is our moon

It was a very thin crescent shape YET when looking at it, you could see the WHOLE moon! The rest of it was just really dark but you could clearly see a full circle

And don't give me any garbage about it being some stupid 'optical illusion' and that our brain fills in the gaps or other such nonsense. If the moon is as it is described in official texts, than I should NOT have seen a full moon when there should only have been the thinnest of crescents

Moon is debunked

Moon is debunked

This is quite common and is a result of the dark side of the moon being lit by earthlight.

In what sense do you think it 'debunks the moon' ?

As I interpret what you have said, you're seeing the moon just after, the new Moon, as opposed to Full moon. This occurred during the day, and the reason why you see the rest of the Moon dimly lit, Is earth shine, the light reflecting off the earth onto the moon.
Earth shine still occurs after dark.

It was early in the night although pitch black. Not a ray of sunshine

I dont care how many light bulbs you turn on on Earth. It is not going to light up the moon. The surface of the Earth is covered by around 70% water. Hardly reflective enough to light up the Moon

Plenty reflective enough, as your own observation testifies. Unless you have another explanation...

I'm guessing that this is something like what you saw:

The bright part of the moon is directly illuminated by the sun.  The barely visible part is illuminated by sunlight reflecting off of the daytime part of the earth (which is why it's barely visible).

When the moon appears as a thin crescent, the Earth is almost at the full phase when seen from the moons dark area.  You know how bright the full moon is?   The full Earth is even brighter.  It is bright enough to partially illuminate the dark portion of the moon.  This effect is sometime referred to as "The old moon in the new moons arms"

That picture of the moon was obviously taken with a camera and film.
 Another case of exposure as in "Why don't you see the stars in the moon pictures ?". 
 Your eyes have a more dynamic range than film and camera.
You would probably see a bit more brightness than in the dark area barely visible  in the picture,
Stick close , very close , to your P.C.and never go to sea
And you all may be Rulers of The Flat Earth Society

Look out your window , see what you shall see
And you all may be Rulers of The Flat Earth Society

Chorus:
Yes ! Never, never, never,  ever go to sea !

One would think that the shadow object should block any harmful rays during the total lunar eclipse.

Super wolf blood moon.

How do you guys not realize you are being had.

Super.
According to the original definition of supermoon – coined by Richard Nolle in 1979 – a full moon or new moon has to come within 90 percent of its closest approach to Earth to be dubbed a supermoon. In other words, any full moon or new moon that comes to within 224,775 miles or 361,740 km (or less) of our planet, as measured from the centers of the moon and Earth, is a supermoon.

Wolf.
January: Wolf Moon. Native Americans and medieval Europeans named January's full moon after the howling of hungry wolves lamenting the midwinter paucity of food.

Blood.
“The red component of sunlight passing through Earth's atmosphere is preferentially filtered and diverted into the Earth's shadow where it illuminates the eclipsed moon, making it appear red or 'blood' color,” said Caleb Scharf, director of astrobiology at Columbia University.

Another way to think of this change in color is to imagine standing on the surface of the moon during a total lunar eclipse. When looking at the Earth, you would see every sunrise and sunset happening on Earth at the same time.
This new color the moon takes on is how total lunar eclipses earned the blood moon nickname.

“'Blood moon' is not a term used in astronomy. It’s more of a popular phrase, perhaps because it sounds so dramatic. It simply refers to a 'total lunar eclipse,'” the Old Farmer’s Almanac reported.

Moon.
What else should we call it?

I mean come on.
Where are we going?

We've had two 'Super' full moons already this year and a third due this month. Many millions of people have viewed them and it is probably reasonable to assume that the next will be too.

With such a large sample size, will the society be gathering good statistical evidence of the claimed dangers of exposure to moonlight?

My theory is that there is a correlation between all of these rare moons and the the rise in self righteous, entitled, whiny millennials.  Has anyone else pieced together the connection, or is it just me?

Re: Moonlight: Dangers & Precautions

Probably just you. The real connection is almost certainly their age. Since time immemorial the elder generation have thought scornfully of the younger.

That's a relief. I had to walk outside at night a few times last night and my face was exposed. In saying that, no exposure is safe exposure so I assume some damage on a micro scale took place anyway. FML
