How does the moon light?

1 Answer

The moon shines because its surface reflects light from the sun. ... At any given point in the moon's trajectory around the Earth, only half of its surface is facing the sun, and therefore, only half of the moon is lit up. The other half of the surface faces away from the sun and is in shadow.
