    Note the shadow of the windmill:

    Here's the part of the sky where the light should be coming from:

    reported several times before by several people. completely ignored. i think they have decided to have moonlight from dusk to dawn because otherwise people would be complaining that night is too dark even more than they already do.

    Yeah, I'm not complaining too loudly. It's just odd.

    I was looking for the same thing, when the sky is all black, why do I see perfect full moon style moonlight?

    then it wouldn't have shadows and wouldn't peter out just before dawn.

    super bright stars, that cycle their brightness? hmm, are the shadows moving too? that'd be problematic as the stars barely move...

    yep. shadows indicate a bright object rising just after sunset and setting just before sunrise. ...only there's nothing there, or if the moon does happen to be there, it's coincidence.

    There's a way to make night scenes visible without just cranking up the moon light.

    A quick solution (to the whole moonlight+shadow thing) would be to use soft shadows to blur them out or just remove shadow-casting completely whenever there's no actual moon visible in the sky. Heck, they could do that for overcast weather too.
