Ok, I know this is a weird question, but I didn't have anything else to do at this point time, sooo... Why not ask you people?

Does anybody know if exposure to moon light actually makes you paler? I've heard it has, but I kind of doubt it...

Is there like such a thing as a MOON TAN?!?! That'd be sweet...

Interesting, wouldn't the (reduced) light of the sun bouncing off the moon nullify the UV rays? I'll look into it. I don't think a moon tan would be possible, because the light shining from the moon is many times less that of the sun.

You know, I read somewhere that starlight gives you cancer, but then again what doesn't nowadays.

Nope, Couldn't make you paler unless I guess you only went outside when there was moonlight. But the moon wouldn't be the cause of your paleness anyway.

As most said, it can't make you get any paler. If anything it may tan you a bit, unnoticeably. It's still sunlight, just that it's being reflected off of the moon's surface.

Once the suns rays bounce from the sun onto the earth I doubt they are still in the UV wavelength. If anything you'll get some IR band light mixed with high band visual (like pale blue . . .) that quickly cools as it passes onto the non lit earth.

i think i learnt something like this in science last week , interesting , though the scary things that have to do with moons (wolfs and apes , that scares the complete crap outta me) plus it promotes night life aswell , come to think of it thou , most night life can see in day , thou it may be hard to because of the light difference you get from a sun and a moon (no , i'm not sayying wolves and crap have bad eye sight , in general i'm talking about things like maybe some birds and or reptiles , ack , just a theroy , don't mind me taking the thread on a jungle horror ride with a accident)

So is it possible, over a long period time, to get tanned by moon light? If yes, would it be different from a sun tan?

that made absolutely NO sense at all =o

the moon does do some crazy things, in combination with the sun though, like our tides :)

If you were to be tanned by it, it would be the same as a normal tan since your body would react in the same way. Only way you'd get pale would be because you're not in the sunlight ever.

I have never seen such an incoherent attempt at communication in my life.

Dare I ask you rephrase that?
