I was curious to find out that as to why, the moon looks more sharper during the day in winter, whereas it's almost not visible during summer.

    $\begingroup$ Perhaps less turbulence during clear say in winter as compared to clear day in summer. And perhaps the sun being far from your line of sight? $\endgroup$ – Alchimista Jan 2 at 13:18

    $\begingroup$ When the moon is near full, it is higher in the sky in winter than in summer, so it is shining through less atmosphere. $\endgroup$ – antlersoft Jan 2 at 16:37

    $\begingroup$ @CarlWitthoft The answers to that question are almost entirely about viewing through a telescope (which the current question doesn't mention), and none of them offer any information at all about seasonal variation (which is the core issue in the current question). I'm voting to leave this question open. $\endgroup$ – Chappo Jan 3 at 1:38
