Bad Moon Rising?


THE lowest-hanging full moon in 18 years is going to play tricks on you this week.

Sometimes you can't believe your eyes. This week is one of those times.

Step outside any evening at sunset and look around. You'll see a giant moon rising in the east. It looks like Earth's moon, round and cratered; the Man in the Moon is in his usual place.

But something's wrong. This full moon is strangely inflated. It's huge!

You've just experienced the Moon Illusion.

Sky watchers have known this for thousands of years: moons hanging low in the sky look unnaturally big. Cameras don't see it, but our eyes do. It's a real illusion.

So, get off those lazy butts sitting on the comp all day and go Out of Your Boxes and try to see the Summer Moon Illusion. Maybe its tonight.

-----
note: read what NASA has to say. And what the solstices and eqinoxes has to do with this.
