Thanks for the feedback!
because the rotation, axis and movement spins around exactly the same time.
some believe it was a sign of death
This is because the rotation of the moon is equal to it's orbit around the earth. That is: it takes the moon 28 days to make a full orbit around the earth, and 28 days to make… a full rotation. As a result, the same side of the moon is always facing earth.
The Full Moon is opposite the Sun in the sky and therefore it rises as the Sun sets and sets as the Sun rises. (Actually, near the Earth's poles in summer, you can see the Ful…l Moon during daylight.) You can never see the New Moon either because it is in line with the Sun and hidden by glare. (You can see the New Moon in the daytime, but only when there is a solar eclipse.)
Answer Black. The reason behind is the moon has very low gravity. Because of this it has an atmosphere so thin as to be almost negligible, with a total atmospheric mass… of less than 104 kg. No atmosphere means no scattering of light which moon's surface receives from sun. So person standing on the moon surface will observe sky being of black color even during day time. On the other hand earth has gravity multiple times of moon's gravity. Due to this it has atmosphere which is responsible for scattering of light which earth receives from sun.So person standing on earth surface observes blue colored sky during day time. The blue color of the sky is due to Rayleigh scattering. As light moves through the atmosphere, most of the longer wavelengths pass straight through. Little of the red, orange and yellow light is affected by the air. However, much of the shorter wavelength light is absorbed by the gas molecules. The absorbed blue light is then radiated in different directions. It gets scattered all around the sky. Whichever direction you look, some of this scattered blue light reaches you. Since you see the blue light from everywhere overhead, the sky looks blue
When the Sun's light hits the atmosphere of the Earth from an angle, the light is refracted or "bent", scattering the light throughout the atmosphere. The refracted blue… light is so bright that you cannot see the stars, which are fairly dim. However, if you can block out most of the blue light of the sky, you will be able to see stars. For example, if there was a hole in the roof of a very dark room, you may be able to see stars shining the blue sky. The sun is close to Earth compared to other stars, the distance from the sun to Earth is only 149 million kilometers compared to the second closest star's distance to Earth, which is 4.2 light years (1 light year is equal to just under 10 trillion kilometers)! So we can imagine that the sun is quite close to Earth. Being so near Earth, the light from the sun can outshine all other stars when it is above the horizon. So, the other stars are actually still there but are outshone because they are so far away. When night falls, the sun sets and its brightness disappears, this allows other stars to give of their light. That's why we can only see stars at night. The light from the sun refracts in the atmosphere, producing what is effectively a glare of sufficient intensity to block out the light from other stars.
Here are the names of the moon phases in sequential order: New moon (not visible from earth) Waxing crescent First quarter Waxing gibbous Full moon Waning gibbous … Third quarter Waning crescent Dark moon (not visible from earth)
Two important things are happening here. First, the moon orbits the earth once every lunar cycle. You would notice this if you were able to observe the earth and moon from hig…h above the north pole. Second, you would notice that over that long orbital period the earth is spinning quite rapidly in comparison. So the moon lumbers along in its relatively slow orbit as the earth buzzes along like crazy. As long as the moon is in a place where the earth is between it and the sun, then the moon will appear in the night sky for any observers on earth. When the moon is closer to being between the earth and sun, then whatever part of the moon's earthside face is still lit by the sun will be visible in the daytime sky to any earth observers. when the moon gets closer to the sun (it doesn't always cross right over the sun) then it becomes basically invisible to earth observers, except for those rare and wonderful solar eclipses that we can enjoy if we are at the right place at the right time.
Answer Because it doesn't matter if it is night or day - light from the sun is reflected off the moon to your eyes. The surface of the moon is very light …in color and thusly reflects almost all visible light off its surface and at night this is why the moon is very bright. During the day it will appear white or gray because of the sunlight it reflects.
The different shapes are called phases.

Moon Phases Phases
The Earth rotates around it's own axis every 24 hours. The side of the Earth which faces the Sun is considered day. The moon roughly revolves around the Ea…rth every 28 days. The moon does not produce any light itself. When you see the moon you are seeing light which is reflected off the moon's surface. The amount of light reflected depends on the angle the moon makes between the Earth and the Sun. These cause the phases of the moon. For example, when the Earth is between the moon and the Sun, a full moon is seen only at night. Because the side of the moon which reflects the sunlight is facing the part of the Earth that is facing away from the Sun. You can only see a full moon at night. When the moon is between the Earth and the Sun, the side of the moon which is reflecting the sunlight is pointed away from the Earth, so you can't see the light. This is a new moon. Between these two extremes are the other phases, crescents, quarters, gibbons. Each representing more and more of the surface of the moon which is reflecting the sunlight. During these phases, portions of the Earth can see the reflected sunlight off the moon while that portion also faces the sun. Hence you see the moon during the day. If you see the moon rising after the sunrise the moon is going from new moon to full moon. Each morning you will see more and more of the moon, and the moon will rise later and later. Until the moon only rises after the sunsets, which would be a full moon. Similarly, if the moon is east of the sun, the moon is going from new moon to full moon. If you see the moon setting before the sunset, the moon is going from full moon to a new moon. Each evening you will see less and less of the moon until the moon disappears which would be a new moon. Similarly, if the moon is west of the sun the moon is going from full moon to new moon.
In The Moon
Considering that the full moon is sometimes bright enough to read by, you can see a lot during a full moon. Some vintners harvest their more sensitive grapes at night by moonl…ight. Did you mean on the Moon itself? At the full, the entire visible half of the Moon is illuminated.
No, the surrounding sky, around the star, would be just as bright as if you were NOT in a deep hole.Please note that some of the brighest stars and planets (especially Venus) …CAN be seen in the daytime, but that doesn't require a deep hole.
