When the moon is seen from earth during your daylight hours is it the moon you see or a relection from space?
Answer 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 2…8 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.
The moon does not "go" anywhere during daylight. Sometimes the moon is visible during the night time hours, sometimes during daytime, and sometimes during parts of both day an…d night. the other side of the earth usually
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 new moon cannot be seen from earth because there is no sunlight hitting the moon so there is no reflection to see in the sky
At new moon, the side of the moon facing Earth is dark and therefore can't be seen period.\n. \nJust before or after new moon you get a crescent moon, which can be seen durin…g daylight if it's far enough away from the sun.
You can see the Moon in the daytime because it is big and brightly lit by the sun.
The only phase that you can not see the moon is when it is in the New Moon phase.

Because space does not stop light from traveling. The earth has light sources on it that help it be seen on the dark side and on the light side it reflects a massive amount of… light from the sun. The moon reflects light from the sun. The majority of what astronauts see locally is a reflection of the suns energy.
the sun is lthe light which then travels to the moon and the moon reflects the light off the sun which then travels down to earth
No we can see the moon , but the light of the sun is to bright.
It looks like the moon, but no one really knows.
