shine on, moon!

I haven't checked, but I must believe tonight is a full moon.  I saw it rising in the sky as I drove home, and it was absolutely enormous

Sometimes it just seems unbelievable that there's a huge moon out in the sky, revolving around us.  It's such a lovely thing, obviously the source of many flowery poetic statements.  But it's so *dramatic*.

I heard someone once say that the moons looks larger when near the horizon because of the way our brains process relative size.  So then as the moon moves through the sky, it looks smaller because nothing is near it to compare it to. 

Shine on, moon!
