You just discovered that the Moon has phases. Because the Moon orbits the Earth (at the rate of about 28 days per orbit). It is constantly changing its position relative to the Sun. In (about) 28 days, you will see the Moon in the same phase you saw it this evening. stardate.org...

I just find it odd that the sun and the moon, are on the same side of the earth in almost the same position at nearly the same time, only an hour or two apart.
Have you never seen a day moon when the moon and the sun from our perspective share the same sky?
How can you see your couch and the table lamp which illuminates it at the same time?
If the Moonlight is a reflection of Sunlight, how can we see them both at the same time?
When it's right behind it,it doesn't. When it's to the side, it does.
How does the Sun illuminate the side of the moon we see, from far behind it?
Nah. (what's a Hunab Ku?)
sun a satellite to Hunab Ku.
Cold? It's not cold but it is much weaker than sunlight. Why doesn't the spectrum of your couch match the spectrum of the table lamp which illuminates it?
Why is Moonlight cold? Why isn't the spectrum a match for the Sun it supposedly mirrors?
