The moon is not seen at all on the new moon.why???​

1 Answer

  • The moon is not seen at all on the new moon because:

    The moon itself doesn't make a light, it reflects sunlight. At the point when the moon lies between the Earth and the Sun, it is just the posterior of the moon that is light by the Sun. In this circumstance, the side of the moon confronting the Earth can't mirror any light whatsoever and seems dull.  

    The distinction between another moon and a sunlight based over-shadowing is during a sun oriented obscuration, the moon is actually in the position to completely obstruct the sun during the day.
