If you have never seen the Moon, look up to the sky! It is not always above the horizon, but when it is, it can be seen very clearly.

The moon is seen from the Earth...

Only our moon ("The Moon") can be seen from Earth.

The moon can't be seen from earth at the time of the New Moon.

Why do we see differences in the appearance and movements of the Sun and Moon from Earth

Of course the moon can be seen from the Earth ! !

It is not because of sunlight that the Moon can be seen from Earth. It has everything to do with the location of the Earth and Moon, and the properties of reflected light.

You would see similar phases, but the earth phase as viewed from the moon will always be the opposite of the moon phase as seen from earth at any given time. If the moon is seen as a full moon from earth, then the earth would be in complete shadow. If a new moon is seen from the earth, then a full earth would be seen from the moons surface.

There's only one difference between the sky seen from the Earth and the sky seen from the moon. The sky seen from the Earth has a moon in it, and the sky seen from the moon has an Earth in it. Other than that, exactly the same objects in the same patterns are seen from both places.

Not exactly. The lighted side of the moon as seen from Earth is that part that is not shadowed by the Earth.

The moon's phases can be seen from the earth, but not by an observer on the moon. Similarly, the earth's phases can be seen from the moon, but not by an observer on the earth.

The changing appearance of the moon is due to the moon's orbital motionaround the Earth.The changing appearance of the sun is due to the Earth's rotation.The changing appearance of the Earth is typically due to ground fog.

New moon phase. The moon is between earth and the sun, so none of the lit surface of the moon can be seen by anyone on earth.

The moon's phases seen from earth, and the earth's phases seen from the moon, are always complementary.If you add together the lighted portion of the moon as seen from earth, and the lighted portion of earth as seenfrom the moon, they always exactly add up to a fully illuminated disk.At the time of New Moon, a person standing at a place on the moon from which the earth is visible would seea 'Full Earth'.

The new moon is the moon phase when the side facing Earth is completely dark and cannot be seen because the moon is between Earth and the sun.

No airport on earth can be seen from the surface of the moon by the unaided eye.

At the time of the New Moon, an observer on the moon sees a Full Earth.(But he has to be on the dark side of the moon to see it.)Here's something to think about that strikes us as strangely beautiful in a way:The earth-phase seen from the moon is exactly the part of the moon that's missingas seen from earth.In other words, if you take the earth phase seen from the moon, and add it on tothe moon phase seen from earth, they always add up to make exactly one full disk.

As seen from the moon, the Earth is a brighter source of light than the moon is as seen from the Earth. This also depends upon the phase of the Earth, just as the brightness of the moon varies by phase. A full moon and a full Earth are in the brightest phase.

the new moon cannot be seen from earth because there is no sunlight hitting the moon so there is no reflection to see in the sky

The new moon can't be seen from the earth.

The Moon Is Seen At Night From Earth because, When The Sky Is Dark, So Is The Atmosphere, And The Moon Is Very Bright Compared To The Black Atmosphere, Same Reason The Earth Is Seen From The Moon. :)

As seen from the Moon, the Earth would be waxing to the full Earth phase.

The crescent Moon implies a gibbous Earth, as seen from the Moon.

That is sometimes what the Moon is called. Seen from Venus the Earth and Moon would be seen as a pair of bright planets up to 0.5 degrees apart at opposition, which is the diameter of the Moon as seen from Earth.
