A team of American experts has discovered that in the ascending dates, when the moon is brighter and bigger in the sky, shark attacks around the world also increase.
But why does this happen? So far no one was able to send in the perfect solution, which is not strange.
Even more surprising is the fact that most of the shark attacks in the days of the rising moon have occurred in broad daylight.
This does not mean that sharks attack people at night without being affected by the moonlight.
Scientists at Louisiana State University and the University of Florida used data from the International Shark Attack Files (ISAF) for this joint study , which has been compiled regularly since 1958.
These figures show that between 1958 and 2016, sharks attacked humans 2,785 times for no apparent reason worldwide.
After analyzing the details of the attacks, such as the location of the attacks, local time and the state of the moon in the sky, analyzed them and found that the ‘unreasonable’ attacks of sharks were clearly more in the dates of the rising moon.
In contrast, the dates of the waning moon have seen a large number of such attacks.
What puzzled scientists, however, was that in the lunar eclipses, most shark attacks occurred in daylight when the moon was in the sky but not as bright as the sun. ۔
Do sharks be affected by the moon’s gravity that forces them to attack humans? According to scientists, it would be premature to say anything about it at this time.
In a report published in the latest issue of the research journal Frontiers in Marine Science, the experts said that at present they do not have enough data to attribute more shark attacks to the rising moon.
The current information does point to this, but the final result will require more extensive and detailed research.
