The Moon

Ok, I'm a day late... but you can still see it.

Summer Moon Illusion

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.
