Interesting, I'd never heard of this before. This is called a Sidereal month because it's "the time it takes the Moon to return to a given position among the stars." en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sidereal_month#Sidereal_month

comment Why wasn't Miles Dyson disarmed?
@jampez77 Yes, normally one person might stay behind to try and talk him out of it while the rest get a safe distance away. But in an instance where the trigger is something that the bomber physically can't keep open, it makes sense for everyone to run for it.

@MathewFoscarini You're welcome. I haven't seen the remake yet, but the original is extremely well done. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who likes scary movies.
