Where is the shadow?

Good catch. The light standards are clearly casting long shadows. The aircraft shadow should have been at about 10 0'clock off the nose. The aircraft sitting at the gates show clearly defined shadows. The shadows on the approaching aircraft cast by itself are clearly seen on the left wing, left engine cowling and from the vertical stabizer.. The aircraft appears to be crabbing slightly from a cross wind NW to SE. Altitude is about 150 to 200 feet.
Could be one of those CIA rendition aircraft with air to ground shadow suppression technology.
Laugh, will ya? Ocam would have a tough time with this one.
