Magic of the Moon

Horst Thiel
Its exploration and influence on earthly life
As an astronomer, I present two aspects of the moon in an entertaining way: Its scientific-technical exploration as well as the belief in its magic; because it is precisely it that fascinates people. The things people attribute to it: suicides, serious traffic accidents, psychiatric emergencies, insomnia, influence on birth rates, on plant growth and much more. Many people arrange their visits to the hairdresser according to the moon, and wood cut according to the lunar calendar is said to have extraordinary properties. I present how these problems are seen from a scientific point of view and show fascinating photos and videos of the lunar surface and the landing of the astronauts.
