Why Does the Moon Change Size?

Answer

The moon seems to be changing in size because of a phenomenon called size constancy. One theory about the moon illusion indicates that when the moon is close to the horizon we see it to be far from us as compared to when it is high in the sky. Because the moon is the same size, our minds make it appear bigger when it is close to the horizon so as to compensate for the increased distance.
