2. The ground is uneven. The parts of the rolling ground surface that is more toward the sun (in a more direct angle relative to sunlight) is
brighter than the rolling surface that is slightly away from the sun (less direct angle relative to the sunlight).
3. Huh? I’m confused what you mean. The shadow (marked by a cyan arrow in the image below) is pointing in generally the same direction as the
astronaut’s shadow. If the rock was front lit (as it states in the text in your image), then why would its shadow also be in the front?
4. Lunar regolith (dust) is somewhat reflective. That reflectivity is more likely to shine upwards rather than along the surface. Therefore, the
dust next to the shadow on the surface isn’t filling in the shadow with reflected light, but it is helping to fill in the front of the astronaut.
By the way, the reflective regolith also helps create the Heiligenschein.
