There is a black moon orbiting the red moon, or if not a black moon, then a at least some sort of celestial body that is projecting darkness to the surface of the moon. I don't know if this is still true.

That's propably true, since the moon is directly overhead over there. IMO the crater still gets some sunshine every day, even if the moon hovers in the sky, bloated and high up. I wonder why Dara Happans aren't alarmed by this. My mind boggles at the thought that the black moon eclipses the sun first during full moon!
