But that is not what makes this moon look so large. It is a visual trick where your mind is comparing the relative size of the moon to a known object (in this case, an oak tree). BTW – the moon is no larger on the horizon than it is when we see it high in the sky – again, it’s just an illusion. For more on this, Google: Ponzo Illusion.
