At night, insects orient themselves to the light of the moon. By keeping the same angle to the moon, they fly straight, depending on their distance from the celestial object. If an insect mistakes a lantern for the moon, however, it will circle it with an increasingly smaller distance until it ultimately flies into it.

»In all the discussion for or against a trip to the moon, it was never important that we should do it in order to be able to take a look at the Earth. A unique chance to take a look at ourselves from the distance of space. How crazy and completely human.«
Astronaut Joseph Allen on the Apollo program
