    At night, the moon is up.

    At night, the moon is up.
    At morning, the moon is down and sun is up.

    The up and down here are motion or position?

    Re: At night, the moon is up.

    Neither sentence is natural.

    'At night, the moon comes up' [motion] or 'At night, the moon is out' [position].

    'In the morning, the sun comes up' [motion].

    It's not as simple as the moon going down and the sun coming up in the morning. From time to time the sun and the moon are visible at the same time.

    Whenever the sun and the moon are visible in the sky at the same time in the UK, I always exclaim "What do they have in Australia?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
