If you will go down into a deep well or the open shaft of a deep mine and look up at the sky, of which you can see a circular patch at the top j of the well, you will be able to see the stars in the daytime. The moon also shines in the daytime, on some part of the earth. At certain times during the month you ean notice that the moon rises before the sun sets, and sometime in the morning you can still see the moon in the ky after the sun is up.. Usually you cannot see either the moon or the stars in the daytime, because the link Inn W L.:L ....... ... .,. w w ii i)nt , ! strong that the light of the start? and moon are lost in the brightnes of the sun's rays. ' When the moorl is visible before the sun sets or aft4 ' the lun has risen it is because tht light of the sun i not so bright and strong at' the beginning or close of , daylight.
