When we observe the sky, the Sun, Moon, and stars appear to move from east to west because of the rotation of Earth (so-called diurnal motion).

See the following figure and observe the earth rotation (rotation axis)

Earth Rotation

Now this is clear because earth rotation is clockwise direction on its axis so a person see the sun, moon etc rise in the east and move towards west.
