So driving to work today, beautiful clear sky. I noticed to my right, the full moon was still at about 35-40 degrees above the horizon. To my left the sun was peeking out from above the distant tree line. It made me wonder; what happens if you're a Werewolf? Do you stay wolf form till the moon sets? Or do you change back to human because the sun is coming up?
These are the questions I ponder while driving to work, coffee mug in one hand, steering wheel in the other…..

At this time the answer is unclear due to a dearth of reliable empirical evidence. Further research is obviously needed; maybe I should write a grant proposal…

I think I'd call it a mental health day and stay home…

A werewolf would stay wolfish until the moon goes down – they are ruled by the moon, not the sun.
A vampire would be retiring to his coffin or turning to dust (or just losing a lot of his powers, according to Dracula).
A vampire werewolf, well…

Well in the Underworld series of movies the vampire/werewolf hybrid appeared to not be bothered by either the sun or the moon.
It really depends on which mythos regarding werewolves you are going to go by. Again going by the Underworld films the moon was the trigger by which someone afflicted with lycanthropy undergoes their first transformation. After that they can transform at will.

The Werewolf would start chasing its tail.:)

Not sure,but wasn't there a "Far Side" strip which dealt with that?
