    in the past , one of the physics scientist belived that moon is like a miror that reflects the light.
    how can we refuse his idea and prove that moon is opaque .

    Since we see the moon, it must reflect some sunlight. It doesn't have its own light source.

    Opaque means not see through or transparent. A mirror reflects light but is also opaque - light can not pass through it. You can tell the light is originally from the sun because you get lunar eclipses when the earth gets in the way. This is always when there is a full moon and the earths shadow passes in front of it for a short time.
