Never really rests

  7. You got me thinking that the moon works 24/7, please confirm. Then I remember hearing someone say that its the same but becomes the other by night or day. I’m lost.

    • Both the sun and the moon do. work 24/7. The moon has no light of its own, it reflects the light of the sun. The sun and the moon are always visible in one hemisphere or another. So, during the day, when the sun is in the sky in my hemisphere, the moon is in the sky on the other side of the international date line. Then as we greet the moon, the sun is rising on the other side of the world. Hence, neither stops working. 🙂

    • And, sometimes they are in the same hemisphere – thus we see the moon by day as well, in the same sky. The lunar eclipses are caused when the earth gets between the moon and the sun and cuts off its reflected light.
