So I was recently hitting a good-ole homemade apple pipe late at night over the holiday break, and I looked up and saw the moon. So, as I so often do whilst high, I began to think of these random things about the moon. How would it feel? How would it look? What's underneath it all? During my internal musings, I thought of what the surface would look like. Would it be bright? I always pictured the moon as a dark and forbidding place. But now that I think of it, I believe the moon could be just as bright as daytime on Earth! I mean, it's not that much further from the sun then Earth is, so why not? Of course it wouldn't have all the green grass and bright colors that our Earth has so it wouldn't be reflecting off any of that, but I still believe that it could be quite bright. All comments are welcome!

yea, course it would, it's about the same distance from the sun.. because it revolves much more slowly than the earth tho, its days and nights are much longer than ours, so it has a lot longer to warm up and cool down, so it can get really hot in the daytime and really cold at night.. but yea, besides that, it has no atmosphere so you won't see a blue sky and little fluffy clouds or anything like that, but it would be as bright as the earth, certainly
