You're welcome. I thought you might have been confusing the view of the sun from the moon with the view of the earth from the moon. For an astronaut standing on the earth-facing side lunar surface, the earth wouldn't cross the sky, or rise or set. It would stay in the same position, just rocking slightly up and down, right and left, to correspond with the libration movements of the moon we see from earth.

Did you know that the Apollo landings were planned to occur during lunar 'morning', so that the sun would be low and the shadows long, to help the astronauts to orient themselves more easily?
