Subject: Sighting of a HUGE Horizontal Shadow crossing the Moon early morning on 1st January 2019 We were enjoying our New Year’s Eve outing at a location in Kuwait called Kabd. I was clicking photos of the bonfire when I saw the Moonrise in the eastern sky. I alerted everyone that they must look at the beautiful sleepy Moon. Initially, all looked at the Moon but soon all got engaged with the fun activities around the bonfire.

I kept on clicking the rising Moon’s photos. I got so engrossed in taking photos of the beautiful Moon using my Nikon P900 camera that I totally forgot I was watching the Moon through a very high optical zoom lens. Suddenly I saw a HUGE horizontal shadow across the lower part of the Moon; I tried to click the shadow but couldn’t focus and soon realized that the shadow was fast disappearing towards the right side of the Moon. Luckily one click that I took captured a part of the shadow (in the attached photo).

I would request if experts can kindly examine the photo and especially the shadow while it was captured crossing a Moon’s crater the horizontal shadow is clearly appearing crooked on the uneven surface of the crater.
