The article's headline is rife with spoilers.

Are Earthquakes More Likely During Full Moons? That’s a Myth, Study Finds

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/18/scie ... ycles.html

SPOILERS

Quote:
To analyze the supposed link, Susan Hough, a seismologist at the United States Geological Survey, scrutinized 204 earthquakes of magnitude 8 or greater over the past four centuries. She then matched those earthquakes to the lunar calendar and found that no more occurred during a full or new moon than on any other day of the lunar cycle.
