The moon is, in terms of distance, the closest heavenly body to earth. We can see it for three weeks out of four and people for thousands of years used its light to guide them in the dark. There are a lot of fascinating  legends and myths associated with the moon and its cycles.The word lunatic comes from the Latin luna, because it was believed that people were more likely to exhibit abnormal behavior during a full moon. Studies have shown that emergency room visits and accidents are increased during the full moon period, there has yet to be conclusive evidence for cause.The moon seems to have an effect on animals as well as people. A Florida expert on animal behavior reports that hamsters spin in their wheels more aggressively during the full moon. Deer and other herbivores in the wild tend to ovulate at the full moon, and in Australia's Great Barrier Reef, the full moon is mating time for coral. Yep that's right Coral :-)    Coral has a mating season! I mean seriously! Who knew???
