OMG

Ever wondered why you see the moon during the day?

Well now you know…

Driving to work and the sun is out and so is the moon. No, you are not 2hrs early for work, there is a simple explanation behind it.

The moon is up in the daytime as often as at night. It is only during Full Moon that it rises in the east as the sun is setting in the west. That means the moon is up “all night” for only 1 night each month. Other than that, the moon rises and sets on its own schedule.

Why do we see the moon during the day?

It depends predominantly on the brightness of its light. This is basically the Sun’s light reflecting off the surface of the moon and the Earth’s rotation.

In order for the moon to be visible in the sky, it needs to be above the horizon. On average, the moon is above the horizon for 12 hours a day. This means that some of those hours will definitely coincide with the Sun being up. The moon is in fact visible during the day nearly every single day, except for when it’s close to a new moon or is a full moon.

Now back to work and stop procrastinating…
