The Earth rotates around it's own axis every 24 hours.
The side of the Earth which faces the Sun is considered day.

The moon roughly revolves around the Earth every 28 days.
The moon does not produce any light itself.
When you see the moon you are seeing light which is reflected
off the moon's surface.
The amount of light reflected depends on the angle the moon
makes between the Earth and the Sun.
These cause the phases of the moon.

For example, when the Earth is between the moon and the Sun,
a full moon is seen only at night. Because the side of the moon
which reflects the sunlight is facing the part of the Earth that is
facing away from the Sun. You can only see a full moon at night.

When the moon is between the Earth and the Sun, the side of
the moon which is reflecting the sunlight is pointed away from
the Earth, so you can't see the light. This is a new moon.

Between these two extremes are the other phases,
crescents, quarters, gibbons. Each representing more and more
of the surface of the moon which is reflecting the sunlight.

During these phases, portions of the Earth can see the reflected
sunlight off the moon while that portion also faces the sun.
Hence you see the moon during the day.

If you see the moon rising after the sunrise the moon is going
from new moon to full moon. Each morning you will see more
and more of the moon, and the moon will rise later and later.
Until the moon only rises after the sunsets, which would be a full moon.
Similarly, if the moon is east of the sun, the moon is going from new moon to full moon.

If you see the moon setting before the sunset, the moon is going from full moon to a new moon. Each evening you will see less and less of the moon until the moon disappears which would be a new moon.
Similarly, if the moon is west of the sun the moon is going from full moon to new moon.

Where does the moon go during daylight?

The moon does not "go" anywhere during daylight. Sometimes the moon is visible during the night time hours, sometimes during daytime, and sometimes during parts of both day an

Why you do not see the moon during new moon?

Because at the time of each new moon, the earth is blocking the light from the sun from reflecting off the surface of the moon. _______________________________________________

Why can you not see stars during daylight?

We cant see stars during day light because as we known that the definition of the star is that a body which do not have its own light.So,during the day the light of the sun is

Why do we not see the moon during full moon?

Why do you not see the moon during new moon?

Because its position in the sky relative to Earth and the Sun means that the face pointing to Earth is unlit. As the month progresses the relative positions change and more an

How do you see the moon during day?

The moon is always in the sky, the reason we can see it at any time is because it reflects the brightness of the sun. During the night the earth revolves so that the sun is on
