Why can the moon be seen sometimes in the middle of the day, along with the sun?
I saw the moon at around 3:00 in the afternoon one day, and wondered why it was out so early, or could be seen during the day. Does anyone know why the moon can be seen during the day sometimes? Thank you for answering.
I had to think about this one for a moment and I can answer part (if not all) of your question. Part of it has to do with how reflective the moon is. The moon is like a huge mirror and it reflects the sun's light because of the moon's white surface. The other part involves the moon's orbit around Earth. I couldn't tell you all of the details of this if I could but those are the two reasons why the moon can be seen in the daytime.

Rather simplistic. Ignoring quite a few facts in order to reach a desired conclusion.
