I was thinking of this but it lasted only when he went outside in the moonlight in a beautiful and hot summer night.
sounds more like sunburn that still feels hot later in the night.

Thank you Omega,sorry he is not susceptible to be highly photo sensitive and about that distance maybe an object or a cloud of unknown radiation of unknown type can somehow influence the way the Moon are behaving and of course only if he is positioned somewhere at that distance behind the moon...on the dark side!
The simple answer is "No." If you do a Google (or other search engine) search on "sunburn moonlight" you will find these Web sites at Earth and Sky and "moonlight" at Wikipedia that discuss this question. Accordingly, moonlight is roughly 500,000 times less intense than direct sunlight, and thus has so much less sunburn-causing UV that there is no danger of "moonburn." If one assumes that a sunburn can be caused by 0.5 hours in direct sunlight, and simply scales that time by 500,000, you would have to be in the moonlight about 28.5 years without stopping to obtain the same burn. xxxx xxxx MadSci Physicist
And while we're all here: Some will occasionally claim that since the moon reflects UV radiation, staying out too long when it's full can get you a case of "moonburn." In medical parlance, these people are known as half-wits. The moon's only 0.0002 percent as bright as the sun and reflects UV light only about half as well as it does visible light; thus, eight hours of top-strength moonlight delivers less UV-B than a second of sun. www.straightdope.com...
