    Optical spectrum of the moon - telescope, grating, camera or Web cam; or project a diffracted slit image through the eyepiece hole onto a white screen and time-exposure photograph that. A transmission film diffraction grating is not expensive. Reflection from a silver CD or DvD will do in a pinch. A full moon gives more intensity.

    Compare with the sunlight spectrum - NOT obtained through the telescope.

    The moon's effect on the Earth's tides?

    The phases of the moon?

    You can google/yahoo either to find out more. Good luck.

    Hmmm, the effect of the moon on the migratory patterns of fish, perhaps? Or the effect the moon has on algal blooms. Or on spawning behaviour.
