The Science of the Moon

The moon has many phases of her cycle but in this series of blogs I am going to focus on the main four.

Each cycles takes between 27 and 29.5 days.  Some months have two full moons or two new moons.  This leads to a black or blue moon.  This is quite a rare occurrence hence the phrase, once in a blue moon!

The moon is very powerful and controls the tides, so it makes sense that it has a huge influence on us with our constitution being 50-60% water.  The very high and very low spring tides are when it is a full or new moon, with neap tides, where there is little variation in the tide heights in between spring tides.
