In poetry:

At morn, at noon, at dewy eve,
Oft by the moon's soft-glancing ray,
In search of Wisdom's rare delights
My feet unwearied lov'd to stray.

And, on its spotless bosom, play
The moon's soft beams, one lovely night;
But when appears the morning ray

Shone thro' thy cell's small window pane -
No more shalt thou behold its light,
Or see its chasten'd rays, again.
"Louis Riel" by Thomas Frederick Young
Dids't hear him call, my beautiful?--
The Sire, so fond and dear
Who ere the last moon's waning ray,
Pass'd in his prime of days away,
And hath not left his peer?
"Annie Seymour Robinson," by Lydia Howard Huntley Sigourney

For strange enjoyment thus alone to stray?

Now thoughtful gaze upon the moon's pale ray?

Her slanting rays are creeping
Where Nature lies profoundly still
In happy quiet sleeping,
And resting on her face, they’ll find
The earth is wet with weeping.

In news:

There has been a cast change made in "The Effects of Gamma Rays on the Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds," which opened this weekend at The Acting Company in Yuba City, or so I'm informed by Earle and Nancy Perillo.
REVIEWS Azure Ray, 'Drawing Down the Moon.
A total solar eclipse will occur on the morning of 14 November 2012 and the rays of the Sun re-emerging from behind the Moon will be the intergalactic start gun for the world's first Solar Eclipse Marathon.
The lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth casts its shadow on the full moon, blocking the sun's rays that otherwise reflect off the moon's surface.
Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds' opens.
The Ramona Hillside Players present their latest production "Effects of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds" this weekend.
At any moment, he wrote, there is a Sun Party (the majority party, which drives the agenda) and a Moon Party (the minority party, which shines by reflecting the solar rays).

The experimental program includes studies of muon families and the primary composition, sidereal anisotropies, high multiplicity events in coincidences with other experiments, the moon shadow, searches for point sources, gamma ray bursts and exotic events.

Observation of the Galactic Cosmic Ray Moon shadowing effect with the ARGO-YBJ experiment
In fact, as pointed out in 1957 by Clark , the cosmic rays are hampered in their propagation to the Earth due to the Moon’s presence and a deficit of events in its direction is expected: the so-called Moon shadow.
Observation of the Galactic Cosmic Ray Moon shadowing effect with the ARGO-YBJ experiment
In this paper we present the observation of the galactic cosmic rays Moon shadowing effect carried out by the ARGO-YBJ experiment.
Observation of the Galactic Cosmic Ray Moon shadowing effect with the ARGO-YBJ experiment
The best procedure to evaluate the pointing accuracy is to observe the position of the Moon shadow produced by high-energy cosmic rays which are negligibly affected by the geomagnetic field.

The fluorescence mechanism can also operate when solar X-ray photons are absorbed by solid surfaces, such as the surface of the Moon (Schmitt et al., 1991; Wargelin et al.
