Day Moon

As I was walking to work today, observing the beautiful blue sky and verdancy of the trees, I happened to notice the moon above me. It was higher than any day moon I have seen, almost being at the zenith. It was crescent in shape, but with the circumferential outline to half-moon still visible. I love day moons. I feel it makes earth seem other worldly. As well, I try to picture the representation of the earth, sun and moon as they would be in space. Kinda blows your mind.

ps: Light from the Sun takes 8.3 minutes, while the light reflected off the moon takes about 1.5 seconds
