Not sure how to translate those coordinates, but IF you wish to provide images you can use the ATS resources....I'm not keen on how they work, but
I'm sure others here can help.
Thing I question , though, is your description of a "tower". When you consider that the orbital photos of our Moon are taken from above
sure how a "tower" could be depicted from an angle directly above. (UNLESS it is noted by the shadow, ans IF the photo is taken when the Sun is low,
to allow the object to cast a shadow...)
I hope we don't have to explain the way that "day" and "night" occur on the Lunar surface, as compared to what we here on Earth are accustumed
...but just in case, here goes.
Imagine, for a moment, that due to some incredible technology, you are living on the Moon. Your habitat (with everything you need, food, air, water,
air pressure, etc...) is located near the equator of the Moon...got it envisioned now??
OK, good so far....
When you look out your window (from inside this imagined "habitat" on the Moon) you will see the SUN, our familiar Sun, behaving strangely, compared
to what you are used to from being on the Earth.
By your clock, the entire lunar "day" will take about 14 Earth days....you will sleep, and wake, and eat and poop and pee, all those things...and
the Sun will seem to take WAY too long to travel across your "sky"....and your "night" will be equally long.
This is simply because, WE live on, and evolved on, this planet we call "Earth", and it rotates about its axis in what we call a "day", or in
other terms, approximately 24 "hours" (all of these time elements are purely made up, and used for the convenience of we, the residents, of this
The Moon... our only natural satellite, also rotates about its axis, but it does so about ONCE every 29~30 Earth "days"....so each Lunar 'day' is
the equivalent of about 14 Earth 'days'.
This is a phenomenon known as "tidal lociking", and is seen in other natural satellites in our Solar System.
Our Earth-Moon system is actually, in some senses, a "Dual planet" system, because of the relative sizes and proximity...in fact, though it is
subtle, the two bodies (Earth and Moon) have a center of mass that exists WITHIN and beneath the Earth's crust, by just a few hundred meters.
ANYWAY, this concept of 'tidal locking' accounts for what we see, today, as our species exist. A few million years ago, and a few milion years
hence, the dynamics of the Earth/Moon orbiting system were/will be different.
Millions of years ago, WE did not yet exist, obviously. Millions of years in the future, who knows?
BUT right now, we have this natural satellite, we call the Moon, and it is WELL studied (at least the hemisphere that is mostly showing to us, as our
planet rotates beneath it, as it rotates, more slowly than the Earth, and orbits around us....)
ALL of these various motions, and the Sun that illuminates it all, combine to provide the sights we see.
Human interpretation of alien images (and the Moon is alien, in this context) provide quite a bit of fodder for these "conspiracy" beliefs.
True knowledge of science helps to mitigate these misunderstangs...I just wish more people would take the time to learn....
