Why is a daytime moon sometimes called a children’s moon? It stemmed from the idea that children couldn’t stay up at night late enough to see the moon when it appears only in darkness. Another theory is that it’s called a children’s moon because their eyes were sharp enough to pick it out, and the older folks, with fading vision, could not tell it from the clouds.
