What would you like to do?
Yes. At any moment, 1 / 2 of the moon's surface is illuminated by the sun, and the other 1 / 2 is in darkness ... exactly as happens on Earth, and any other spherical …body illuminated by a single light source. And exactly as happens on Earth, the line between the light half and the dark half is continuously moving, so that over the long haul, every point on the entire surface is in sunlight for 50% of the time and in darkness for the other 50% of the time. There's no place on either the Moon or the Earth that's ALWAYS, eternally and perpetually, in either light or dark, with the possible exception of coal mines, and the floors of craters with exceptionally high walls.
there is no sun to warm it.
Other then Pink Floyd, says who? :P Fact: There is no dark side of the moon.
The side not facing the sun wouldn't be bright, so it really is dark!
There is no "dark side of the moon". Every point on the moon is illuminated for roughly 50% of the time, just like every point on earth. However, we can only see about 55%… of the Moon's surface, because its rotation matches the revolutions around the Earth. So the 'back side' of the Moon never faces Earth. **************** Half the moon is 'dark' at any one time. Every point on the moon is illuminated for roughly 50% of the time, as the first answer said. So there IS a dark side of the moon :). And it is very dark, so that stars can be seen more clearly than anywhere on earth.
Yes. The estimated temperatures on the moon's surface are: where the sun shines: 225 F (107 C) where the sun doesn't shine: negative 243 F (-153 C) Remember ... there'…s no place on the moon that's always light or always dark. Every place on the moon is in sunlight for about 2 weeks, and then dark for the next 2 weeks.
Pink Floyd did
No, because If we have a Full moon than the other side has a New Moon! Isn't that interesting? :)
There is no life anywhere on the moon - light or dark side.
In The Moon
Actually no. Because we cannot see the back side of the moon. But it is not always in dark. Sun can shine on it too
Nope apparently when the sun doesnt shine on the dark side of the moon in space where its freezing its boilding hot 2nd Answer: Well, the dark side of the Moon is where it is …nightime, not the "far" side. Like on Earth, nighttime on the Moon is always moving round and around the globe. So, the part of the Moon that is dark or nighttime is very cold . . . say about -238 degrees, F. The part of the Moon that is in daytime is hot. There is no atmosphere on the Moon to hold in heat at night, or filter the Sun's heat during the day.
The sunlit side of the Moon (and other objects in space) receive a lot of energy from the Sun (light is only part of that energy) This energy heats the illuminated part of the… Moon. The part of the Moon in shadow receives almost no energy at all and cools rapidly (by emitting heat radiation which is invisible to our eyes but can be detected with instruments sensitive to infra-red wavelengths.
yes it is i think! i am pretty sure though
