Is the full moon to blame for your insomnia?

Forget about a full moon bringing out the crazies - it appears it may also ruin your sleep.

In a study involving 33 participants, when the moon was full it took participants longer to fall asleep and led to a lower quality of sleep - despite the fact that they were in a completely dark room.

Those involved also produced lower levels of melatonin - an important sleep hormone.

So the obvious explanation, light, being a factor gets thrown out of the window this time.

Why does a full moon harm your sleep, then?

Unfortunately, researchers don't have a clue. Hopefully we'll see more research in the not-too-distant future.
