The "shard" can be seen on the horizon and there is a landmark in the picture with a known location.
Mare Orientale is labeled in the picture and it is located at:
Huge structure on the moon's horizon...filmed with a celestron 130 SLT telescope and an 18mm eyepiece
Why does it still exist. Why does anyone still care.
At least he is making an effort and actually putting time into his work. I'm sure even you Phage can respect that, even if Sander is not always spot on with his conclusions.
Phage has answered most of the questions if not all in this thread.
Athlon, for some reason the NASA warriors didn't comment on your shadow point......
I woudn't really mind to consider the Shard and the shadow as two different formations, but it does look as thou the nearby crater's shadows are consistent with the Shard's shadow direction.

The Sun is on the right. The right rims of the craters are shading the right side of the craters.
I understand the concept and when i look at the crater which i circled in red (on right) i can see its outer rim edge is highest on the left side of crater (as looking into picture). Therefore the shadow is casting in the same direction as shard indicated by arrow.
And in the circle on left you can see two shallow craters on a hill rise and yes the shadows in both are consistent with the sun casting a shadows in the same right direction as shard.
In this picture below its obvious which direction sun is illuminating moon face from and as we move closer to the darkside we see the shadows growing from left to right looking into the page. Now look back at them two little craters i circled. No doubt about it the sun is on left looking into page and the shard is casting in the correct direction.

Not unless you can explain what light source would produce that "shadow".
You misinterpreted the crater shadows before and you are still doing so.

It might be for the same reason there is no NASA picture of the 'crashed' space ship on the other side of the moon.... it doesn't exist?
There is certainly more proof to the contrary than there is proof that it "doesn´t exist". No idea how you got those stars for such an ignorant post, on a forum where the motto "deny ignorance" is held in such high regard.
