The shadows of the astronauts on the surface of the moon are real, but they are not a hoax.

We’ve seen and read about the Apollo astronauts who have been on the moon. But are their shadows real, or are they just illusions?

Astronauts have been seen in shadows on the moon. One could argue that the shadows were just reflections or that the astronauts were standing in a dark area. However, advanced cameras used by NASA have proven these shadows to be real.

Is it possible to send astronauts to the moon and make them stand in the shadows of the landing craft? If it is, then why is it that some astronauts remain in shadow, while others do not?
