God says it that settled it. Don't try and interpret something that is not their. Let the verse interpret its self.

The economy of words signifies Gods supreme authority. He has no need to justify Himself or His works.

My brothers and sisters, please, donít be deceived. You cannot use science to explain Godís word, because the bible has made us to understand that Godís ways are higher than manís. Just as the heaven is high above the earth. Remain blessed.

I'm having some difficulty in understanding the last clause, "[He made] the stars also." I've read elsewhere that the words inside the brackets (as well as the last word - "also") are not in the original. They were added during translation as help in understanding the verse. So to add the sentence "He made the stars also." seems to me to be saying God made the stars together with the sun and the moon -- after He has created the heavens and the earth in verse 1. Looks funny to me. The closest (and much easier for me to digest) meaning must be that the stars were (made) to rule the night also. Or if we move a little farther back (v.14), as signs for seasons, etc.
The sun and the moon could have been made after God made the stars (heavens) therefore to say that he made the stars also during or after He made the sun and the moon doesn't fit logic and science.

According to Science Moon doesn't have it's own light, and Moon light borrowed from the Sun.. What this Genesis 1:16 says and What Science says kindly get me the details..
