When, in the course of its orbit around the Earth, the face of the moon is fully exposed to the sun's light, the result is, from the surface of our planet, a full moon--the moon rendered as a complete circle of shining light. This phenomenon occurs over a three-day period every 28 days. It is much beloved by moon worshippers, lovers, poets, and werewolves across the world.

Anyone who doesn't get a charge out of the sight of a full moon hanging in the sky or beginning to peek over the horizon should turn in their Human Race Membership Card now, as far as I'm concerned.
