I keep reading reports about how the moon will be the closest it has ever been and thus, it will appear larger than ever before.
Well this is partially true.
The real reason the moon is going to appear really large is the way it will rise over the horizon and the optical illusion which is created.
Scientists have no understanding of how this takes place, which is pretty amazing.
The illusion occurs when the Moon is near the horizon. For reasons not fully understood by astronomers or psychologists, low-hanging Moons look unnaturally large when they beam through trees, buildings and other foreground objects. When the Moon illusion amplifies a perigee Moon, the swollen orb rising in the east at sunset can seem super indeed.
A lot of people will discover this illusion first hand as they try to photograph the moon in all of its large glory.
As they look through the cameras viewfinder, they will be sorely disappointed by the tiny moon that appears.
Our cameras do not fall for the optical trick our eyes fall prey to.
Have fun and enjoy the pretty sky, just don’t plan on taking any pictures of it.
