I Saw the Moon in Broad Daylight

16th February 2016: The Moon at 4.44pm
No, that’s not a title to a song or a poetic metaphor. I literally saw the moon a few days ago at around four in the afternoon. Sunset was not in another three hours or so when I saw the moon right out my window.

I can recall just a handful of daylight moon I have seen throughout my entire life, and I certainly don't remember seeing one in the afternoon.

Apparently, it is more common than I thought; I just have to look up during the day more often.

At 4.46pm: It's still there.
I was so excited to finally have it in photos, but apologies for the grainy photos as I took them with my phone, and had to do some extreme croppings to show you the moon.
