Why does the moon appear so big sometimes?

MoonIt’s the Moon Illusion.   It’s especially noticeable at this time of year.  Step outside any evening at sunset and look around. You'll see a giant moon rising in the east.  It looks like Earth's moon, round and cratered; the Man in the Moon is in his usual place. But something's wrong. This full moon is strangely inflated. It's huge!
find out why that is here.
