Please indicate sources of information. Never heard of full moons that cause earthquakes.

The full moon high tides can cause non-seismic

The secret is in no change in the gravitational pull of the moon, but in the direction of the vector in relation to the Sun's gravity and the combined effect of both on the ground is all . When we see the full moon is fully illuminated by the Sun , while the side we see from Earth is in darkness . Put another way , the full moon occurs at a maximum distance of the moon opposite the sun, at the confluence with the Sun in opposing forces on Earth that lies directly between them. This is the explanation for the rising tides , and concomitant RIP forces in the plates themselves as the Earth revolves focused monthly gravimetric field .

Who said it ?

do not volcanic activity , the tension in the subducting plate and causes with mamga activity in the lithosphere and asthenosphere
and many other factors but a full moon is not one of them

Because stupid people found out, that Earthquakes happen at full moon.

But they failed to verify, if Earthquakes also happen at other moon phases. Or if the distance between apogee and perigee has any effect.

In summary, the state of science: Moon phase or lunar true anomaly has no effect on earthquakes.

At full moon, the sun's and the moon's gravity act in opposite directions, putting maximum tension on the rocks in the Earth's crust. Add in where the Jovian planets are in relation to the Earth, and there may be even more tension to trigger earthquakes.

For all of you saying the correlation is total bunk, please read this:…
