Why does the moon shine?


    The moon is the earth’s satellite. It revolves around the earth just like the earth revolves around the Sun. The moon appears to ‘shine’ because the light from the sun strikes its surface and is reflected to us. But, it is a strange fact that we can see only one side of the moon. It is so because the moon rotates on its axis in the same length of time as it takes to complete its revolution around the earth. Since, the moon has no atmosphere, the light from the sun results in many interesting phenomena. For fourteen days, the surface of the moon is heated by direct sun rays and for the remaining fourteen day, it has a cold, dark night.
