Where does the moon hide in the day?
The moon either 'hides' behind the Earth, or in the sky in plain sight. The reason we often can not see the moon even when it is in plain sight is because the moon does not give off any light of its own. Further the light of the sun is so bright, it obscures any light that the moon is reflecting.
There are 8 phases of the moon, these are the following: New moon (Day 0), Waxing crescent ( Day 4), First Quarter (Day 7), Waxing Gibbous (Day 10), Full Moon (Day 14), Waning Gibbous (Day 18), Last Quarter (Day 22), Waning crescent (Day 26) and back to New Moon. The answer of your question is Waning Gibbous.
Studies done on some animals indicate that their reproductive cycle is influenced by the phases of the moon. They are therefore more active in and around the full moon. Most animals hide by day and become active at night so one would think the better light of the full moon would slow activity but this is proven erroneous. Animals become more active at night with a full moon .
Full Moon. The phase of the moon is determined by the position of the moon to the earth to the sun. When you have a lunar eclipse the earth comes between the sun and the moon creating a shadow for the moon to hide in. If it is not hidden then it is in position to mirror back the most light which is the full moon position.
