Is the Moon Out Tonight? is the 26th chapter of Hiro Mashima's Fairy Tail.

After getting a sight on the Galuna Island, Natsu, Lucy, Gray and Happy notice that Bobo, the boat owner, has disappeared. The group suddenly encounters a giant wave which causes their boat to crash on the shore of the island. As they walk around, they pass through a village gate and meet Moka, the village chief. He explains the island's curse and says that the cause of this curse is the moon. Now the group is given their mission: to destroy the moon.

Happy dives underwater looking for him but cannot find him. Suddenly, a giant tidal wave begins to form behind the boat and swallows the boat.

Lucy wakes up in Galuna Island and checks if everyone is okay. Lucy tries to think of a way to stop the curse, but Natsu tells them to go straight to the chief of the village. Gray decides to come with them saying that if they get expelled from the guild, it will be boring. They arrive at the village but are unable to go in because of a giant gate which has "KEEP OUT" written on it. Natsu tries to break it, but Lucy stops him and calls for anyone in the village. Lucy explains that they are from Fairy Tail, and the villagers ask them to show their guild marks. After they show their guild marks, the guards of the gate also tell Lucy to strip. Gray started to strip her, but Lucy refuses and the guards apologize, saying that they got carried away. The guards then let them in the village.
