Moon Illusion on the Summer Solstice
By NASA
Jun 16, 2008, 19:08 PST



Sometimes you just can't believe your eyes. This week is one of those times. On Wednesday night, June 18th, step outside at sunset and look around. You'll see a giant form rising in the east. At first glance it looks like the full Moon. It has craters and seas and the face of a man, but this "moon" is strangely inflated. It's huge! You've just experienced the Moon Illusion.
