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 Ea…rth every 28 days. 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.
It's still the moon. The English language has no separate word for when it is seen in the daytime instead of at night.
Yes, it is possible to see a full moon during daylight hours because it is big and brightly lit by the Sun. When you look at the Moon, you are seeing the light which reflects …off it. Also because of it's size.
the moon is still there, you just can't see it in the day because we are facing the sun and the moon would then be on the other side of the Earth. yes he is correct : )
If you stay at one spot on the moon and don't move, the sun is up in your sky for roughly 14.77 days, and then down for the same length of time.
When the moon is seen from earth during your daylight hours is it the moon you see or a relection from space?
It is the moon you see,
Yes. At times the moon is visible in the day, at times in the night and at times during parts of both day and night.
Yes, the moon has a roughly 14 Earth day day length. The lunar landings were arranged so that the astronauts were on the moon during the lunar day.
You can see the Moon in the daytime because it is big and brightly lit by the sun.
But we can! Fairly frequently.
No we can see the moon , but the light of the sun is to bright.
It was a way to conserve electricity, extending daylight deeper into the evening.
The moon does not "go" anywhere. the earht spins very slowly. so when it is morning the moon it on the other side of the world.
In The Moon
on the moon daylight last 13.65 days because if you divide 27.3 by 2 you get 13.65 days on the monn.
