I was out in the afternoon today, in the hot Sun. As I looked up at the bright blue sky to check for any passing clouds, surprise – the Moon had risen!
Here’s a photo if you don’t beleive me.
I took it at 2pm.
A closer look.
I thought I was confused with a tuft of cloud.So I looked at today’s weather report. This is what it says –
Moonrise (Tuesday): 12.02 pm
Moonset (Tuesday) : 12.16 am
Apparently the first quarter moon rises at noon. Its only the full moon that rises at sunset. Here are some links for people like me on physics 123
