Quick: close your eyes and picture the moon! I bet you imagined it at night, didn’t you? That’s because we’re used to associating the moon with nighttime. But why is it that sometimes we can see the moon during the day? We asked astronomer and planetarium educator Sarah Komperud from the Bell Museum in St. Paul, Minnesota to help us find the answer.
