Is the moon a luminous object?
First of all, a luminous object is something that produces its own light. The moon does not produce its own light. The Sun radiates light which is reflected to the earth by the moon. This is why it looks bright; the moon is only a whitish ball of rock.
An example of a luminous object is the Sun.
Because the sun is shining on it.
Just like all of the objects in a dark room, you can't see them unless you shine a
flashlight on them. The flashlight that makes it possible for us to see anything in
the solar system is 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.
Luminous objects create light .A non luminous object does not give off light. For instance, my feet are not luminous. Our sun and the rest of the stars in the universe are luminous Non-luminous objects are the ones who doesn't have its own light like you can say moon,trees, branches,plants, metals mirrors bricks etc.
