I’m currently doing an observational study of the moon that’s been a passion of mine for the last few years. I’ve found I can see the moon all the way to almost full at about midday). Added I can see all moon phases most of the night and in sunlight while it moves from the 1st quarter all the way trough the 4th quarter. Simply said, the only time I’m not able to see the moon during the day is at the new moon and maybe a day later.
My question is, how I can see an almost full moon at midday if it should have set and be on the opposite side of the earth illuminating Asia? The angles and orbits are not lining up!
