Asked in Astronomy, Planetary Science, The Moon
What phase of the moon reflects least amount of light?
When the Moon lies between the Sun and the Earth the unilluminated portion of the Moon faces the Earth. In astronomical terminology this is known as a New Moon. _____________________________________________________________ Actually, the Moon reflects an equal amount of light in every phase. The difference is, how much of that reflected light then goes on to hit the Earth? During the Full Moon phase, the maximum amount of the reflected light strikes the Earth, and at the new moon phase, NONE of the reflected light is directed back toward the Earth; the reflected light is all directed back into space.
