Would it be possible to see a full moon during daylight hours?
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.

No. Lighthouses are not lit in daylight hours, because a lighthouse light is like a giant magnifying glass made up of usually hundreds of prisms. If the light was on in daylig…ht hours the magnified beam of light is capable of focusing the sunlight just like you can do with a hand-held magnifying glass. This laser beam of light could easily ignite dry vegetation as the light sweeps over the land.
It means you left the fish out.

During a full moon, the moon is on the far side of the earth, away from the sun. In other words, the earth is between the sun and the moon. That means that the sun is behind …us, shining on the part of the moon facing us. Therefore, we see the fully lighted side of the moon, which we call a full moon.
If you want to see something in your back yard at night, you illuminate it with a flashlight and then you can see it.. We can see the moon at night because it is illuminated …by the sun. We can't see the sun at that time, because the earth is in our way. But the moon is out from behind the earth, so the sun can shine directly on it.
Not really; you only see the side that's facing you!! Plus you don't see below the surface...
At a full moon, the moon and the sun are on opposite sides of Earth. Since there are high tides on both sides of Earth, a spring tide is also produced.
For the eclipse to occur the Earth, Sun and Moon have all got to be on the same line. For lunar eclipse, Moon has to be behind Earth, looking from Sun, so Earth's shadow could… cover it. Also, Moon has to be behind Earth for full moon - that's when we see the biggest part of it lit. Moon can't be possibly eclipsed during new moon, because it's then located between Earth and Sun and therefore Earth cannot cast on it a shadow. Also, solar eclipses can only occur when Moon is located between Earth and Sun, ie. in new moon phase. In order for a lunar eclipse to occur, the Moon must be directly 'behind' the Earth, exactly opposite the Sun and in Earth's shadow. It's behind the Earth, opposite the sun, once every month, and that's the position for a Full Moon. But it's usually above or below the shadow, which is why we don't have a lunar eclipse at every Full Moon.
It was explainedto me years ago that if the airport does not have a control zone the airport is closed.
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.
Considering that the full moon is sometimes bright enough to read by, you can see a lot during a full moon. Some vintners harvest their more sensitive grapes at night by moonl…ight. Did you mean on the Moon itself? At the full, the entire visible half of the Moon is illuminated.
No. You still have to look upward through the sunlit atmosphere. The airborne dust creates the light haziness, which makes starlight extremely hard to see.
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.
In The Moon
If you were on the surface of the moon during a lunar eclipse, it would be dark since either the earth or the sun would be in front of it. If you, however, were on the lig…hted side of the sun during the eclipse, you would see partial light and have to wait for the eclipse to end to see full light again.
We see the full moon in the sky because it reflects light to Earth. It does not make it's own light so what we see in sunlight reflection off of the moon's surface.
The same side of the moon always faces us, regardless of the phase. When the moon is full that side is fully illuminated by the sun as the moon is approximately on the opp…osite side of Earth relative to the sun.
