I was told recently that the moon on the 22/22/99 was going to be especially bright because the moon was slightly closer to the earth on that date. I am also aware that in the geological past the moon has been significantly closer to the earth. It has often baffled me how plants survived through the 6 months of darkness in Gondwanna. Would it have been possible for reflected light from the moon to have been sufficiently bright to allow plants in ancient Gondwanna to photosynthesis during their extended darkness. This would give a whole new meaning to the midnight sun!
