    is this also why the sun at sunset in africa is huge as in every animation or the atmosphere enlarges it as a spyglass?

    Damn you all to hell!
    I liked it better when I thought the moon was bigger.

    Thanks for taking one more bit of magic out of the world.

    My friends kept saying "look how big the moon is tonight!"
    I`d look at it and think "It doesn`t look any bigger than normal..."

    Because now whenever I see a large moon, in the back of my mind I`ll say "no, same size".

    Actually, due to the eccentricity of its orbit, the apparent size of the moon can vary considerably.

    yeah but now you`re thinking: "nope, same size. It`s just my brain playing tricks on me because well, brains are awesome"

    yeah but it`s proven the moon changes size if you shoot it with a sniper rifle... at least in Liberty City anyway.
