This is probably the inappropriate place to post something of this matter, but I know no other.
Sam mentions a "mystery" among neurologists regarding the size of the moon, questions why it appears so much larger when it is in a vertical position.
Maybe I am misguided here, but couldn't it be due to the fact that the moon is much closer to the viewer when it is in the vertical position.
In addition to the physical proximity, this difference can be attributed to atmospheric distortion of the light from the moon.
I'm almost positive this isn't the solution to the mystery, if it's a mystery among neurologists.
Can someone please give me some guidance regarding this question. Please prove me wrong, because the answer seems much too obvious.
