Question

Why is light from the moon called cool light while light from the sun called hot light? 


Solution

Sunlight comes straight from the sun and onto earthit has an extreme amount of energy.so it is called hot light.

Moon light comes from the sun, but instead if hitting earth right away it hits the moon and then reflect off of it onto earth.it is also hot, but not much as that of light from sun.
moon doesn't reflect all the photons of light which it gets,the process of reflection absorb the fraction of energy by the surface of moon. So the light provided by moon has less energy,so it is not that much hot as the light of sun.so it is called cool light
