1. Your insomnia paid off, big time!
That is one stunning pic!

I especially love the shadows at the upper edge, where you can see the craters so clearly.

Just wonderful!

Thank you, and I hope you got some sleep!

2. you get the shadows when its less than a full moon
a full moon has none since the sun is hitting the moon dead on,and not at an angle like it does at other times
