Why Can We Sometimes See The Moon During The Day?

The DoSeum is a place where interactive fun and hands-on learning come together—a place where minds are always at play.  During your visit, our exhibits, programs, and classes will encourage young minds to explore the joy of learning through connections to STEM, the arts, and literacy, but curiosity and exploration don't have to end when you leave!

Explore our DIY Activities, Storytimes, and Questions from Kids that were created for you to DO at home and stay connected with your family while keeping minds at play in between your visits!

To learn more about how you can help support your DoSeum, especially during these unprecedented times, please visit our SUPPORT page.



Why Can We Sometimes See The Moon During The Day?

The Moon brings us light at night, affects the ocean's tides, and is visible almost every night, but why can we sometimes see the Moon during the day?  Dr. Richard will explore Cayden’s question in this week’s Ask A Doer!  Grab your space suit and join us before we blast off into space and answer: How come you can sometimes see the moon during the day?   

Terms You’ve Learned:

Diameter – The length of a straight line passing through the center of a circle to touch both sides.
