Is our moon the brightest moon in space?

    This question is rather vague? What do you mean by “in space?” Do you mean what is the brightest moon from our perspective here on Earth, or do you mean what is the brightest moon in the entire universe? If it is the former, then yes, our moon is the brightest moon from our vantage point because it is the closest moon to Earth. If it is the later, then the answer is no, even without knowing what is the brightest moon, simply by virtue of their being much more massive stars than our sun. The brightness of the moon is a result of the sun’s light reflecting off of it. Therefore, moons in solar systems with larger stars or that are closer to those stars, will be brighter. But again, brightness can’t really be appreciated without knowing where we are looking from.
