Why Does the Moon Rise Later Each Day?

Answer

The moon rises later each day because it grows to a gibbous phase and continues to lag further behind. The Moon orbits around the Earth and each day, it moves eastwards by approximately 12 degrees. This means that it gradually lags behind the Sun, by approximately 50 minutes a day.
