Moon does not have light of its own. How are we able to see the Moon?

Answer :

Moon is the natural satellite of Earth. It revolves around the Earth. The moon completes one rotation on its axis as it completes one revolution around the Earth. The moon does not produce its own light. We are able to see the moon because the sunlight falling on it gets reflected towards us. Therefore, we are able to see only that part of moon, from which the light of the Sun is reflected towards us.
