Shots form Yahooo, somewhere in California.
If you really are moving to North Texas let me know.

See a Huge Moon Illusion Wednesday

Senior Science Writer
SPACE.com
Tue Jun 17, 11:15 AM ET



As the full moon rises this Wednesday evening, June 18, many people will be tricked into thinking it's unusually large.


The moon illusion, as it's known, is a trick in our minds that makes the moon seem bigger when it's near the horizon. The effect is most pronounced at full moon. Many people swear it's real, suggesting that perhaps Earth's atmosphere magnifies the moon.


But it really is all in our minds. The moon is not bigger at the horizon than when overhead.


The illusion will be particularly noticeable at this "solstice moon," coming just two days before summer starts in the Northern Hemisphere. The reason, according to NASA, lies in lunar mechanics: The sun and full moon are like kids on a see-saw; when one is high, the other is low. This week's high solstice sun gives us a low, horizon-hugging moon and a strong, long-lasting version of the illusion.


If it's any consolation, space station astronauts report the same effect.


Here's how it works: Your mind believes things on the horizon are farther away than things overhead, because you are used to seeing clouds just a few miles above, but the clouds on the horizon can indeed be hundreds of miles away. So if we think something (such as the moon) is farther away, and it's not, then it seems larger.


If you remain doubtful, test the idea yourself. Go out at moonrise with a small object, perhaps a pencil eraser. Hold it at arm's length as the moon rises and compare the sizes of the moon and the eraser, then repeat the experiment an hour or two later when the moon is high in the sky. A rolled up tube of paper works well, too.


Moonrise times vary by location. On Wednesday, it will come up at these local times at these locations, according to NASA: New York City, 8:58 p.m.; Miami, 8:35 p.m.; Seattle, 9:51 p.m.


The moon rises about 50 minutes earlier Tuesday night, when the effect will also be noticeable because the moon will be nearly full. Oh, and that raises another fallacy: There's no such thing as a full moon.


Additional moonrise times for your location are available from the U.S. Naval Observatory Web site.

Cool, Jon - will have to try this experiment tonight. Sigh ... summer solstice is already almost upon us - now the days will be getting shorter. I love moonlight but I also love these long summer days where the sky stays light forever.

Well I'm ridin' along
Singin' the same ol' cowboy song
That's been sung a hundred times before
Ain't got nothin' but my name
And I'm the only man I know to blame
But I'm livin' I'm happy and I'm free
Just listen to the wind blow
Let it blow let it blow
Sand over my trail
I got my saddle on the ground
And that ol' moon he can still be found
Hidin' in the desert sky
I like simple things in life
Like a prairie breeze
A good stout horse between my knees
Just bein' alone just bein' me
And when I die let me die
Withe a dream in my mind
A smile on my face and no trouble behind
And no cross on my grave
To show my restin' place
So I can listen to the wind blow
Let it blow let it blow
Sand over my trail
I got my saddle on the ground
And that ol' moon he can still be found
Hidin' in the desert sky
Won't you bury me with my chaps on
And my six-gun strapped to my side
So I can watch the moon a hidin'
In the desert sky
Hidin' in the desert sky
Hidin' in the desert sky
Hidin'in the desert sky

That's a great photo, Jon. Thanks for posting it.

I don't believe this. I've told the story here before about driving across northern Utah in the middle of a bitter cold January night, and seeing a moon as bigger than the one in the picture. I could have stood between you and the moon, and you could have taken a similar picture as this one, with an even bigger moon. I know others have seen the same thing, too. That was one of the freakiest things I've ever seen. It was damn sure not an optical illusion.

As a man I can honestly say...I don't care if they're not real!

Had to take a long look left to right to see what school. Finally figured out it was FSU.
