This question already has an answer here:

Can someone say "kiddush levana" by day if he sees the moon clearly, in full? Or is there a reason why we only say it in the evening other than the fact that the day starts at night.

  • You can't see a full moon during the day... – Double AA Feb 6 '15 at 5:06
  • I just did....(mostly full)--if it was fully full it would be past the 15th anyway. – andrewmh20 May 31 '15 at 1:53

The Rama rules that one can only recite Kiddush Levana "at night when the moon is shining and we benefit from its light" (OC 426:1).
