    We can see the moon during the day for the same reason we see the moon at night. The surface of the moon is reflecting the sun's light into our eyes. When we see the moon during the day it's because the moon is in the right spot in the sky and it's reflecting enough light to be as bright, or brighter, than the sky. BTW I think I am in love with your avatar.

    So taking a few seconds to search online was too hard, was it.

    It's not the Moon that bothers us, it's the dead people you are seeing.

    The moon orbits the Earth.  About the only time you *can't* see the moon during some portion of the day is during Full moon - when the moon sets as the sun rises, and the moon rises as the sun sets... all other times, at least during some portion of the day, it'll be above the horizon while the Sun is as well.  The Moon is also bright enough that it's reflected light from the sun can cut through the brilliance of our blue sky.

    Because the Moon doesn't stop reflecting sunlight toward Earth when the Sun above your boron. The Moon will set in 12 minutes where I am in the USA.

    Rising and setting times for the Moon relate to its phase:

    New Moon rises at sunrise & sets at sunset.  First Quarter rises at noon, sets at midnight; Full moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise.  Third or last Quarter rises at midnight and sets at noon.  So currently we have the waning gibbous moon (phase betweenThird Qtr and New) in the morning sky.

    Because it's not cloudy.
