Why is there a full moon in the middle of the day?

You may have wondered why you can often see the moon in the middle of the day, particularly when it is full.

It turns out the answer is actually incredibly simple: the moon and stars are always somewhere in the sky, we just can’t always see them.

The sun is so bright during the day that it candrownout the light from the moon and stars, but on darker days the moon can shine.

But the reason it is not always visible during the day is all down the the positioning of the moon and whether it is reflecting enough light to be as bright, or brighter, than the blue sky.

After a full moon, when Earth is roughly between the sun and the moon and appears illuminated, comes a morning moon.

What is a super moon?

أ super moon is an impressive sight where the startlingly bright moon looks so close you could almost touch it.

It is a combination of two different astronomical effects and happens when a new or full moon coincides with a perigeethe moon’s closet point to Earth in its monthly orbit.

A moon has to come within 90 per cent of its closest approach to Earth to be formally defined as a super moon.

This is relatively rare, occurring just a few times a year.

في 2022, there will be a super moon on June 14 and on July 13.

On these days, the moon will appear up to 14 per cent larger and 30 per cent brighter.
