About three times a year a supermoon happens. During the supermoon, the light level at night is 30% lighter than any other point in the lunar month cycle. It seems to be much bigger in heaven. A study has shown that wild geese fish had their way with the supermoon. Apparently their heart rate and body temperature increased at night when there was a supermoon. But they did not answer it when the clouds saved the moon at night. So it seems that the bright light of the supermoon woke up the geeks. This meant that their heart rate and body temperature increased.
