Ok, not to be debunking but I was curious about the "Something interesting I just noticed"
So I did a little digging and found this...
From the West Coast to the Recent shooting in the Midwest in Colorado (I'll explain why I stopped there, below). I gathered the date, plus the number
of fatalities + injuries = total victims and then added the phase of the moon.

I see nothing, now admittedly I am not one for statistics and this is only a cursory glance but do you see anything out of the ordinary? Anything
higher than say 50%? I don't, and not enough to keep going I mean only 4 out of 20 were the same moon a waxing sliver which is no better 20% even if
I added the most recent shooting that comes to around 23%.
The dates and places are pretty spread out so if someone else wants to further this they can. I just became bored and sad, but not because I found no
correlation (but because of the subject)!
Here is the moon calendar I used and the shootings along with some myths about mass shootings...

It is an interesting coincidence and observation but not a pattern...
