On the top of all the things the Sun helps the moon to get its own light.


The Sun also affects the moon in many other ways, they are-

  1. Its gravity controls the arbitrary path of both moon via Earth.
  2. The sun also produces a huge amount of light which in-turn helps the moon as the moon only reflects the light radiated by the Sun.
  3. Also when the Moon lies between the Earth and the Sun, we observe a New Moon.

Hope it helps...
