We can see the different phases of the moon at night, but why can we sometimes see the moon during the day?

While the stars (other than the sun) are not bright enough to be seen during daytime, the moon is bright enough to be seen.  The moon is visible in the daytime sky just as often as it's visible in the nighttime sky.  We just tend to notice it more at night when it's the brightest object in the sky.

Visit NSTA's Daily Dos! There are many different lessons you can do on The Moon. One lesson that goes with your question is called When Can We See Different Objects in the Sky?
