I didn't see this posted anywhere, my apologies if it was. It is a very good demonstration of killing the urban myth of the Moon being larger at the horizon.

I just thought BA might want to add a link to it from his Big Moon (http://www.badastronomy.com/bad/misc/moonbig.html) page.

In any case it is a pretty kewl pic

Yeah, I like it too. Made it wallpaper, since I just reformatted and didn't have anything as pretty on that PC yet.

I linked to it in the Sense of Wonder (http://www.badastronomy.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?topic=518&forum=2&3) thread.

I knew that it wouldn't make it by all of us but I just couldn't find it posted anywhere.

Well, if anything is worth repeating, that photo certainly is....
