Guys,

I have had been looking at the Apollo landing site pictures today.
Very poor quality and not much to see. What seemed really weird was that the
objects were a lot brighter than their surroundings and seemed to cast long straight shadows.

I wondered why no other object in the surrounding area cast shadows like the orbiters.

So I mooched around a bit and found a link to full area High Res photos at

Your original post has an 'edit' button. If you use it you can rewrite or complete your OP. Posting threads is tricky at first...easier with practice

For obvious safety reasons, the areas surrounding the Apollo landing sites were relatively flat and did not have a lot of tall features. However, there are a few tall boulders in some of the landing site pictures.

Fir example, here is an image from the Apollo 17 landing site:

Apollo 17 Site

As you can see, the legs of the Lunar Lander (center of the image) are casting a long shadow, plus various other objects that are also casting equally long shadows (there is one to the left of the lander in above image, plus some others). The Lunar Lander's legs are about 10 feet (3 meters) tall. There are a few -- but understandably not many -- objects around the landing site that are at least that tall.
