Does the moon produce any light of its own?
NO it not produce its own light its only like a mirror getting light from the sune a mirror it only get light from the sun
B/c the moon doesn't shine on it's own, it can only reflect sun light. because moon doesnt produce the light so its not luminous. eg. if you cast a torch light at a marble and it appear luminous/glowing that doesn't mean its luminous. *a luminous object is something that produces its own light. The moon does not produce its own light.
A star is an object that radiates its own heat and light. A typical star is a superheated ball of hydrogen and helium that releases energy through nuclear fusion. The moon is much smaller and less massive than any star and is mostly made of rock. It does not produce its own light, but simply reflects light from the sun.
You can see the moon, even though it does not produce light, the same way you can see mountains in the daylight. The lunar surface reflects sunlight. When the moon is full, from our perspective, the earth is between it and the sun--so the entire lunar surface (that we can see) is in broad daylight. When the moon is new then the face of the moon is experiencing night.
The moon reflects light from the sun. Even though you can't see the sun at night, it is still there producing light. So the moon cannot produce its own light to shine. It is not Sun but Moon itself which shine. Concentrate on full Moon at night and u will find what I'M sayin :/ the moon shine because of the sun it reflects to the moon
The Moon reflects the light of the Sun; it produces no light of its own. What's really amazing is how MUCH light the Moon reflects - considering that the "albedo", or reflectivity of the Moon is about the same as a charcoal briquette. It only reflects about 3% of the light that hits it - but the Sun's light is so enormously bright that 3% is almost enough to light up the night sky.
