Chris did mention that he was working on this a while ago, but I'm not sure of his progress.

Oh, yes, Chris showed shadows on models a LONG time ago. Definitely, Cham's models need them...

Darity, a habitable moon orbiting Kepler-16b.

It is part of a sci-fi universe I'm building for my now-finished story.

You could have also mentioned that Kepler-16 (AB)b is too close to the star(s) to be habitable.

But this is a fictional creation.
