Moonraker is actually a nautical term. It refers to a rare sail used on clipper sailing ships. The Moonraker is at the top of the mast. In Rockaway Beach, there’s a sculpture of a Moonraker facing the Pacific Ocean.

The word is English in origin, a name traditionally given to Wiltshire people. It is from a joke about fools who saw the reflection of the moon in a pond and tried to rake it out.
