Re: Dr. Astro, your services are required. Need help identifying an object from the Apollo 16 archive
Here's a better question OP

Why are there light angles from two different light sources ?

The shadows coming from the rover in the back left do not extend like the shadows in the foreground, hence two different light sources at two different heights
Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27255788

Nope. Both appear to be lit from the right. If there were multiple light sources then you'd see multiple shadows on single objects. This is never seen.

Not true. The closest light which is throwing more light on an object is going to create the only shadow you're going to see in a photo. I agree the shadows are right on this photo but there are many that are clearly composites or have more than one light source

the only ones that are composites are the panoramas which were intended to be composites. There are none with more than one light source.

Why is it lit up in the shadow and nothing else really is?
Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74834643

It is the most reflective object in the shadow and therefore reflects the most of the minute amount of light reflected into the area from the surrounding surface.
Whoaa!
