when does the moon shine particulary strongly?
the moon shines particularly strongly when it is at the highest point of its observable course as a full moon, because then the light also reaches the troughs of the oceans’ waves and thus the moon can double its power of illumination. shortly after the new moon the moon shines especially strongly, because then the sun is located behind the moon and the illumination of its parts is caused by the fact that only the crests of the waves at the lateral edge of the globe are hit by the sun. and in turn the crests of the waves stand very close together to the observing eye, so that the eye is actually gazing at the lateral edge of the globe, and hence cannot look into the troughs between the waves.
