Question

Why can you see the moon during the day?

Answer

Why shouldn't you be able to see the moon during the day? The moon is orbiting around the Earth. It takes the moon about 28 days to go right away around the Earth, come back to where it started. The Earth turns. Obviously, it does a complete evolution in one day, 24 hours, since so you would expect to see the moon go across the sky every day, pretty much. At some point so it might not be visible on some occasions so much but it should be there. So that's not so unusual
