I work in a nursing home. Nothing about what a Full Moon does geriatric patients/residents. And, it's NOT a myth!

Low on the horizon you're seeing it through more of our atmosphere. I was told that that's what makes it look larger.

Eileen Dunn, No wind - but, the movement when putting the thing up would've kept it moving for a while. Also, the horizontal rod across the top had been damaged by the astronauts when they were threading it through the top of the flag, so the flag looks like it has "ripples", but in fact, it's purely because it can't hang straight.

What does six times weaker mean? Is that another way of saying 1/6 of the gravitational full on earth? So if my scale would show my weight on earth is 120 pounds, would it only show 20 pounds on the moon? By the way, as I look out the window right now, I can see the Full Moon almost directly over head.

Margie Algood , I was on the bench for thirteen years. During that time, I logged the number of people that came before me during a full moon that I committed to a mental institution. I noticed NO increase of mental commitments during a full moon. However, I did notice a marked increase upon a severe shift of barometric pressure.

The police has noted more problems at full moon. If it can change the tides, it can certainly have effects on our brains!
