The date today is March 18th 2021 Thursday it's 6:00 p.m. I'm in the area of Sarasota-Bradenton Florida. I haven't seen the moon and it's been clear skies for roughly the last five or six nights... I see all the consolation of the Stars where they're supposed to be but I cannot find the Moon. It makes me nervous and I'd like to know why?
Two things: You either have a new moon or waxing crescent moon that is difficult to see or even invisible to the eye. Or (this is more likely), you viewed the sky before moonrise.
Try viewing the night sky in a few days (it will be clearly visible), or view the sky later in the night.
