#80 – Moon Day Monday

Photo taken: August 22, 2016

Who says the moon only works night shifts?  Although it is one of the more recognizable symbols of the night time, the moon spends just as much time in the sky during the day as it does after dark.  It just isn’t as easy to see during the day against the blue sky, and is usually in one of its barely lit phases if it’s out in the afternoon.  But here is the slightly more than half moon showing off its stuff at about 9:30 in the morning… and it begs the question I was unable to find a good answer for when I first featured this photo on my blog… just why is it that you can see through the dark side of the moon in the daytime?  That doesn’t seem to make logical sense, and turning to the internet leads to a lot of flat earth harebrained conspiracy theories about the moon being an illusion.  Anyway, this is the only time I’ve taken a picture of the moon in the daytime, and it’s far and away the clearest shot I’ve ever gotten of the lunar orb.  And the title is even fitting since August 22, 2016 was, in fact, a Monday…

  1. Gosh that’s a good question and it’s never occurred to me to try to find out WHY. Then again I love a good mystery.

    Everyone knows that due to the current world economy we can only afford a whole moon half of the time waffle waffle waffle…

    • Geez, I would hate to think there may come a day when we can’t afford the moon at all anymore, and the aliens we rented it from come to repossess it. That said, the cost of keeping the sun lit must be outrageous, and I think we might lose it first…

  3. Love seeing a daytime moon. Nice capture! 🌛
