Sun is a star. What about the Moon? Is Moon also a star?

No, Moon is not a star. Moon is not a big as a star should be. It is a natural satellite of the Planet Earth. A satellite is a small, round ball that revolves around a planet. As we now know, a star is a massive ball made of gases that react with each other to give out heat and light. But there is no such chemical reaction taking place on the Moon. Since it doesn’t burn any hydrogen, there is no light of its own as well. So. the Moon doesn’t qualify to be a star!
