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

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

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

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

@Gerry: how is understanding less awe inspiring than blissful ignorance?

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..."

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.

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