A shining moon
You know that Earth would be a dismal place without its bright, shining neighbor – the sun. But did you know that the moon would also be just another dull orb if not for the sun’s rays
The moon shines because its surface reflects light from the sun. And despite the fact that it sometimes seems to shine very brightly, the moon reflects only between 3 and 12 percent of the sunlight that hits it.
The perceived brightness of the moon from Earth depends on where the moon is in its orbit around the planet. The moon travels once around Earth every 29.5 days, and during its journey, it’s lit from varying angles by the sun.
