When the sunlight falls on the surface of the moon, then moon reflect that light towards the surroundings and then this reflected light falls on our eyes and the we say moon is lightning.
It is sunlight hitting the moon that reflects back on the earth.
Surprisingly enough, moonlight is caused by sunlight. Moonlight is a result of the sun shining on the moon and reflecting back down to the earth.
The moon does not have any light of its own. The moonlight that we see on earth is sunlight reflecting off of the moons surface.
Simple answer - moonlight IS sunlight, though the sunlight is reflected from the moon to the Earth.
The Moon doesn't create any light, so there isn't really any "moonlight". The light that we SEE from the Moon is actually light from the SUN, which hits the Moon and illuminates it. Some of the light of the Sun bounces off, and some of it is reflected back toward the Earth. We see this reflected sunlight as "moonlight".
By the way, the Moon makes a REALLY BAD mirror. The albedo (an index of reflectivity) of the Moon is about 0.04, which means the Moon actually reflects less light than it would if it were made of charcoal. But because the Moon is pretty big and fairly close, it's quite bright in the sky.
moon light is the light of the sun reflecting off the moon rocks
The moon's shadow comes from the sunlight hitting the moon, and the moon bloching it from going any further.
Moonlight is reflected. Sunlight is direct.
The moon does not produce any light of it's own. The moon is just a giant mirror to the sun.
Almost. You have it backwards. Moonlight is the reflection of the Sun off of the Moon. Our sunlight on Earth is direct light from the Sun.
It Comes from the reflection of the sun light
No, they don't need moonlight to make their food they only make their food when there is sunlight. In night they take in carbon dioxide (CO2) and breath out carbon dioxide (CO2) only.
Yes. The reason we see the Moon, and certain planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn can be seen with the naked eye) is because of sunlight reflected from them.
the sun is reflected from the moonlight.
moonlight does matter because that was all the light people had before fire was found
The bright type of sunlight
Moonlight is sunlight reflected off the surface of the moon.
refelction of the sunlight
because of the sunlight reflecting off of it!
When there is no sunlight, viewers on the Antarctic continent can see moonlight 24/7.
Light has nothing to do with its weight. It weighs the same in moonlight as it does in sunlight.
sunlight and moonlight
It is sunlight reflected from the moon's surface onto the earth.
Sunshine, or sunlight, comes directly from the sun. Moonlight is the sun's reflection off the Moon's surface.
No, the Moon generates no light of its own. However, it reflects the light of the Sun, so when you see moonlight you are actually seeing reflected sunlight.(They apparently didn't think about that when they created the vampire legends. If sunlight kills vampires and moonlight is just reflected sunlight, why doesn't moonlight kill vampires, too?)
The noun 'moonlight' is a common, uncountable, concrete noun; word for the sunlight from the sun reflected to earth from the moon; a word for a thing.
