While the moon is naturally visible at daytime for approximately 10 days in each lunar cycle, most of us are not accustomed to the idea of seeing the moon during the day. Seeing it for the first time always brings a surprise to the unwary observer, thus, this phenomenon is also called by astronomers as the “surprise moon.” Image taken with a mobile phone camera on April 4, 2012 at around 3 pm looking east.
