The moon is visible during the day, depending on its phase and when the moon rises. The moon rises about 50 minutes later each day, so that will also affect when during the day the moon is visible. The moon's gossamer appearance during the day is due to the effects of earth's atmosphere that scatters the sun's light before it reaches our eyes, not the brightness of the sun.
