TRUTH !!
Just as moonshine is sunlight reflecting off the Moon, earthshine is sunlight reflecting off the Earth. During the Moon's crescent phase we can actually see earthshine reflecting Back at us in that strange glow coming from the Moon's dark portion. The amount of earthshine fluctuates constantly, depending on how cloudy our skies are, but it is brightest during April and May.
earthshine was first described by the ever-observant Leonardo da Vinci during the 1500's.
