try 20 lunar months, genius
Speaking of apparent size, another cool thing i found out just recently is that when the moon is low on the horizon it is the same apparent size as when it is high in the sky. It`s all our mind that makes it seem larger (has nothing to do with atmosphere or light or gravity or anything like that).
its called precession its like when you spin a top and the axis spins
there are accual noticeable differences that prove this point
like what a zodiac sign really means is what constellation the sun appears to be in during your birthday, but over the time since the zodiacs signs creation the precession of the earth has actually changed them about one or sometimes two signs off.
for example by the normal signs i am a gemini, but really im a taurus which is two constellations off in the rotation.
and as for the moon crashing into earth you would not die because of the moon hitting the earth the gravitational fields off both planets would rip all the humans animals and everything else on earth apart before it came anywhere close to the earth.
I think it`s odd that it faces the same way all the time, too. Maybe half of it is heavier?? Ha. I have to wonder!
Do other planets` moons stay facing the same way? *will look it up when he`s got more time*
I love that game... I don`t even know why lol, I can never get the bosses though... I always get my brother to do that, I always just play with the masks >.<
Regarding the "dark side of the moon" (the side we don`t normally see)...there`s photos of it available on the web, taken by NASA probes. Try http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Far_side_of... .
I wouldn`t have expected that much size difference in the moon cycles though.
