When I was a lifeguard I noticed that the kids were particularly energetic during a full moon. I kinda feel a little rammy meself to be perfectly honest. I also noticed that there are way more people flying during a full moon but that may be because visibility's better or because they enjoy the full moon sky.
Everyone knows that the moon is responsible for the tidal action we experience on the Earth's surface. Everyone also knows that our bodies are 80% water. Ergo, I firmly believe the moon has at least a slight effect on us. The gravitational forces on the tides and us actually are slightly different during the different phases of the moon. When its full, the sun, earth, and moon are aligned. That means the sun is pulling on us like usual but the moon is actually pulling in the opposite direction, away from the sun and towards itself. So the sun and moon are kind of playing tug of war. As the liquid chemicals in our bodies are of varying densities, we may experience a slight behavioral imbalance. The theory is that this phenomenon is what makes people a little edgy during full moons. On the other hand when the moon is new, its pulling us towards the sun which, with the sun's already powerful gravitational pull, makes the moon's pull just about negligible.
