    Hi Everyone,
    Do you know if there are anything that naturally stores moonlight?
    like plants have chlorophyll to store sunlight and use it. Do we know anything that does similarly with moonlight?
    Thanx fellas

    Chlorophyll. It's just so attenuated that almost nothing is produced.

    Direct sunlight can be 100,000 lux (lumens/sq meter)
    Full moonlight is about 0.36 lux
    That's a factor difference of 277,778

    I don't think that there is a natural process efficient enough to extract or store useful energy from that weak of a light source.
