When the red moon hangs low, the line between man and beast is blurred.
The Moon only looks bigger to the naked eye due to its position with earth-bound objects. To test this theory all you have to do is hold your hand up like a telescope to your eye and look at the moon through it. You'll see it's as small as your camera shows it to be.
Just pull out the sniper rifle and shoot it, you can get it back to normal.
I know I don't get out much, but I think I would have noticed Mars.
I like the fact that the bottom picture has also lower resolution.
It's the [Moon Illusion](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moon_illusion
). Your mind makes the Moon near the horizon look larger than it is. I still can't wrap my head around it. Like, how is my brain tricking me so I can see more detail on the Moon if it's an optical illusion.
I'm not referring to photos of the Moon, where focal lengths are involved. When you look at it on the horizon and it appears larger, that's your brain fucking with you. Your phone's camera is showing you its real size.
"A simple way of demonstrating that the effect is an illusion is to hold a small pebble (say, 0.33 inches or 8.4 millimetres wide) at arm's length (25 inches or 640 millimetres) with one eye closed, positioning the pebble so that it covers (eclipses) the full Moon when high in the night sky. Then, when the seemingly very large Moon is on the horizon, the same pebble will also cover it, revealing that there has been no change in the size of the Moon."
Is it bad that I didn't notice what was different about each of the pictures for like 3 minutes...
Thought I was on /r/comedycemetery
It’s called focal length look it up.
