The full moon has been connected with strange behavior for so long that the word “lunacy” is actually derived from the Roman goddess of the moon, Luna.
There are two very pervasive conspiracy theories about the far side of the moon. The first, being that there’s a secret entrance to an extraterrestrial base stationed there (that has been edited out of all the satellite photos and everyone who’s actually been to the far side of the moon has been instructed to keep silent about it. The second, is that the Russians built a base up there and used it for nuclear testing.
