Best Answer

The moon goes through "phases". Sometimes the moon is opposite the sun, other times it's on the same side of the earth as the sun. During THAT time you won't be able to see the moon at night. You will also not be able to see it if it has not yet risen or if it has already set. Some believe that the moon is always in the night sky. That is not the case.
