How did I forget the sun and the moon yesterday? Well! The sun is not a planet, it's a star - our nearest star. 'Sol' was the Roman sun god (Greek 'Helios'), and that gives us 'Sunday', the last day of the week. And the moon is not a planet either, it doesn't orbit around the sun. The moon's orbit is around the earth. The Roman goddess of the moon was 'Luna'. She is the second goddess. Monday starts the week. The weekend is sandwiched between the two goddesses, Venus and Luna.  Sol and Luna personify the sun and moon. They give us light - the sun by day and the moon by night. A full moon can only be seen in the night, but in the weeks before and after a full moon we can see part of the moon in the day.
