Have you ever wondered why you can see the moon in the day sometimes?

Recently, I shifted to a new place and I am able to enjoy a good unblocked sky view from my service yard. It soon became my favourite spot at home as I found myself gazing at the sky day and night.

The beautiful sky rewards me unreservedly, with views which are never the same. While it is common to see the moon at night, there was a day when I saw a moon at 7.15am before I left the house.

On the same morning, I saw the moon from a bus stop along the expressway. Then, it started me thinking about why this was so. Being someone who had previously lived my life in a rather rushed manner, I had not managed to stop to smell the roses, not to mention to gaze up the sky and admire its beautiful hues. Curious with my thoughts, I googled for the answers and found some links, one of which I felt I could share.

Such is the natural beauty of life and the universe. So, will you now start to gaze up the sky and admire its beauty?
