Imagine that moon emits its own light.Would it still have phases ? Justify your answer.

Dear Student,
If the moon emits light of its own then it would have no phases.The moon reflects the light from Sun. The part of the moon facing sun is lit up and the part of the moon facing away from the sun is dark. As the Moon makes its way around the Earth, we see the bright parts of the Moon's surface at different angles. These are known as phases of the moon.
If the moon has its own light then it will be illuminated always through all parts like the sun. Then it would have no phases.
