Did you know that although the moon shines brightly, and we hear the phrase 'moon light', this is actually a reflection of the sun, as the moon does not create its own light?

As the moon is orbiting the earth, different parts of the surface are being lit up by the sun, so although throughout the month we see the moon as many different shapes, it is actually just our view of the moon that is changing, our moon is always facing us exactly the same way!

There are many different variations of the full moon, including the wolf moon, the pink moon, the strawberry moon and even the flower moon which marks the beginning of spring.

One of the most commonly spoken of full moons is probably the harvest moon, which appears in September and marks the end of the summer crop season, it shines brightly and helps the farmers see through the night as they bring in the final harvest.

The blue moon is the name we give a full moon that appears twice in one month, this happens roughly every two and a half years, and can feel pretty magical!

Check out our list of hilarious moon puns and jokes, they are pretty out of this world!
