Answer this question

  • Why we see the moon in different places ?

The Moon goes through two apparent motions. First of all, because of the rotation of the Earth it rises in the east and sets in the west every day. Secondly, because of its motion around the Earth once every 29.5 days, it rises and sets about 50 minutes later every day. These two motions account for everywhere we see the Moon.

Very simple - the moon is moving in its orbit around the Earth. It takes about a month to go around the Earth once - it rises about 50 minutes later each night than the night before.

Moon if appears in the night it does so all over the globe (well almost). if it is at a place in the sky at a particular hour (of day or night) on the same day & it would appear the same, within about ±6º, whether it is America, Africa or Australia. So, your contention or statement (that we 'see the moon at one place in the night and in different place in the day') is not correct.
