This is one aspect of what I was going for earlier. If one takes the rotating shadow moon model as presented, then under the moon (in Glamour) the moon will appear half-full. A good explanation for the Silver Shadow, and an inspiration for the web of the Reaching Moon.

Of course this doesn't necessarily need the searchlight model, even a moon vaxing and vaning equally everywhere could create a zone of more stable power near the center. I quite like the idea that the silver shadow predates, and is the inspiration for, the glowline.
