Here's a nice simple riddle I thought up while eating lunch (not related!)

"There's nothing new under the sun", they say..
..but my home is, every time I am between you and the sun.

You're referring to the "New Moon", which occurs when the moon is between Earth and the sun. Given your comment, you must therefore be "the man in the moon".

    $\begingroup$ @Konchog - See edit. But note that it wasn't clear that you were asking "Who am I" as well as "What is my home". $\endgroup$ Jan 20 at 19:42
