    Did you know that the Release Date of Transformers: Dark Of The Moon (2011/07/01) is set on a night which has a Dark Of The Moon?

    It’s true. 1st of July 2011 has a night where the moon is absent from the sky. For more details you can visit Lunaf.com for the Moon Phase of July 1st, 2011.

    The term “Dark of the Moon” means the opposite of “Full Moon”. The astro definition of DOTM is… “The Dark of the Moon is traditionally the last three days of the Lunar cycle, immediately preceding the New Moon, and the time when the night sky is notably absent the presence of the Moon.

    It’s pretty awesome to know that the World Premier of Transformers DOTM coincides with an actual Dark Of The Moon.

    How cool is that? :)

    Cool, but since the movie is not released on July 1 everywhere, it doesn't fully work. And I don't think people will stop and think about it anyway. :p

    That's pretty neat. Hopefully, they'll leave it on July 1st and not move the film up to that Wednesday, June 29th.

    Niceness. Though I'd like to be able to look up at the Moon after the midnight showing and think about it after whatever the hell happens to it in the film. Very cool coincedence though!

    For the advertisement of this film maybe they will project the Decipticon symbol on to the shadowed moon via lasers. :p

    Last night when Dad and I were leaving aunts house, it was nearly pitch-black like the moon disappeared! Didn't realize that was called dark of the moon.
