Bomber's moon: Lancasters at night
During WWII the term "bomber's moon" came to be used for nights when the moon was at its brightest, aiding bomber crews in finding their way to their targets - and in maintaining separation between as many as 1,000 aircraft heading for a single location, when the risk of collision was high. The Avro Lancaster heavy bomber was one of the mainstays of RAF Bomber Command's offensive against Nazi Germany.
