E The Moon' s orbit is not in the same plane as that ofthe Earth around the Sun. (This
means that it' s orbit is at a different angle.)
For the moon to be seen it has to reflect light from the Sun to the Earth. Normally this
would mean that the light would pass the Earth, hit the Moon and get reflected back to
Earth on the side that is not facing the Sun, is the side where it is , but this
is not always the case. Sometimes it can also reflect to a section of the Earth facing
the Sun, allowing us to see the Moon in the day time. Think about the Moon being
next to the Earth, rather then in front or behind it (relative to the Sun). The light it will
reflect will be seen from parts of the Earth that are facing the Sun, and some parts
which are not.
