Can you see the moon during the day?
During the day, the sun is at its brightest and the moon is directly opposite the sun. Therefore, you will never see a full moon during the day because the moon is always …changing position in relation to the sun.
In order for us to see the full lighted half of the moon, it must be directly opposite the sun in our sky. So it rises when the sun sets, sets when the sun rises, and the …two of them are not in the sky at the same time.
I see the moon during the day often, except on cloudy days. I enjoy looking at the moon. its very pretty and light has nothing to do with it.
The Earth rotates around it's own axis every 24 hours. The side of the Earth which faces the Sun is considered day. The moon roughly revolves around the Earth every 28 day…s. The moon does not produce any light itself. When you see the moon you are seeing light which is reflected off the moon's surface. The amount of light reflected depends on the angle the moon makes between the Earth and the Sun. These cause the phases of the moon. For example, when the Earth is between the moon and the Sun, a full moon is seen only at night. Because the side of the moon which reflects the sunlight is facing the part of the Earth that is facing away from the Sun. You can only see a full moon at night. When the moon is between the Earth and the Sun, the side of the moon which is reflecting the sunlight is pointed away from the Earth, so you can't see the light. This is a new moon. Between these two extremes are the other phases, crescents, quarters, gibbons. Each representing more and more of the surface of the moon which is reflecting the sunlight. During these phases, portions of the Earth can see the reflected sunlight off the moon while that portion also faces the sun. Hence you see the moon during the day. If you see the moon rising after the sunrise the moon is going from new moon to full moon. Each morning you will see more and more of the moon, and the moon will rise later and later. Until the moon only rises after the sunsets, which would be a full moon. Similarly, if the moon is east of the sun, the moon is going from new moon to full moon. If you see the moon setting before the sunset, the moon is going from full moon to a new moon. Each evening you will see less and less of the moon until the moon disappears which would be a new moon. Similarly, if the moon is west of the sun the moon is going from full moon to new moon.
lift your head and start looking (:
You do on occasion. A full moon occurs when the moon is on the opposite side of the Earth than the sun is. At that position the whole of the moon's face is lit up. It is only …on the opposite side of the Earth than the Sun when it is night time. If the moon is on the same side of the Earth of the Sun, then we can only see part of the moon lit up as part of what is lit up is not facing us.
For the same reason you can see anything during the day, The suns light is reflected of it's surface and enough of this light reaches your visual senses to make sense of… it.
you can't because the side of earth that you are at is facing the other day but it is facing the sun!!!!! note that it actually is possible to see the moon during the day. i a…m from aus and alot of the time especially in winter i can see the sun bouncing off the moon even in the brightest of days. it really depends on the moons rotation and angle to the sun at ay time as to if it is visible or not
It's called an optical illusion. It's not possible to see a completely full moon during the day. For a few days before the full moon, you might see it in the early evening, a …while before sunset. For a few days after the full moon, you might see it in the early morning, a while after sunrise. But when it's exactly full, it rises when the sun sets, and sets when the sun rises, so can't be seen in daytime.
The totally and completely full moon is directly opposite the sun, so they can't both be 'up' at the same time.
The moon is always in the sky, the reason we can see it at any time is because it reflects the brightness of the sun. During the night the earth revolves so that the sun is on… the opposite side of the earth. During the day the sun shines so much brighter than the moon's reflection so we ultimately see the sun first.
Because of the sun.Sometimes the sun hits different parts of the casting different shapes on the moon like, cresents,full,new,gibbous's,quarters.
In The Moon
Because it is above the local horizon.
The Moon revolves around the Earth at a period of about 29.5 days. At the same time each day, if you plot the location of the Moon, it will have moved (360degrees/29.5days)=12….2 degrees from where it was the previous day. This is approximately the distance between your pinkie and fore fingers when you stretch your arm out and spread your fingers, tucking your thumb in. In this way, the Moon makes its way across the sky, spending half of its time in the daytime sky and half of its time in the nighttime sky. This is also the reason why the moon has apparent phases. As a sphere, it is illuminated on one half of its body by the sun. Our perspective of the light and dark sides shows up as a progression from full to gibbous to half to crescent to new.
In most cases during the day, the relatively dim light of the stars is washed out by the scattered light of the Sun, which we perceive as the blue sky (our atmosphere preferen…tially scatters blue light). This excess brightness also causes our eyes to restrict the amount of light that enters them, decreasing our ability to see dim light sources. The Moon is a fairly common sight during daylight hours, provided that it isn't too close to the Sun or below the horizon, and conditions are favorable. It isn't nearly as eye-catching against the bright blue of the daylit sky, and can take some searching to spot. Even the brighter planets can be spotted in very clear conditions, if one knows precisely where to look.
Because in its orbit it goes around the world approximately once a month, and so sometimes it is in a position where it is illuminated by the sun, and you can see the light se…nt in our direction. Ask yourself, why can you see your hand when you hold it in front of your face.
