    the stars are always there, but the sun lightens up the sky so much that we cannot see the stars. They are not bright enough.

    The constellations that are out on the sun-side of the planet are the same constellations that you see at night, in the other half of the year. It is mid-May now, so the stars on the sun side are the ones that you would see at night in mid-late November. the stars are always there. We only see the ones that are away from the sun. Where we are relative to the sun changes as the year progresses, so the visible stars also change.
