Group 9 Luminous Objects

A luminous object is something that emits/gives off light - eg sun, star, light bulb,
A non-luminous object is something that doesnt have/give off its own light - eg moon, diamond, wood.

Non-luminous objects can only be seen because they reflect light, which is given off by luminous objects.
