Did you get a glimpse of the Harvest Moon last night? We’d love to share your photos of it like 1075 Beach Radio texter Theresa Bru did with these terrific photos. She says “Thought I should share this with you. The moon was amazing last night from my deck!” The view is from Okanagan Lake.
Another 1075 Beach Radio texter Vic Spooner shared these photos as well that he took in Mission Hill area.
Do you know there is a link between a full moon and crime? A criminologist claims that people are more likely to commit crimes during a full moon. But what’s the reason? While most of us think of the full moon and it’s mythical effects on people, it’s really the added light on the nights the moon is full. Criminologist, Professor Wayne Petherick, an associate professor at Australia’s Bond University, believes “the only explanation I can see that links criminology with moon phases is just about the practicalities of being a criminal: when it’s a full moon, there’s more light.” A 2016 study or indoor vs. outdoor crime showed no link between total crime or indoor crime and lunar phases but researchers did find that the stronger moonlight seemed to have an effect on outdoor crime — the more moonlight, the more outdoor crimes committed.

Hopefully no crimes were committed in your area last night when you were watching the moon! Now let’s listen to Neil Young sing about it!

Like I mentioned yesterday I’d be enjoying my birthday with a full moon on my deck. It was awesome!
