nothing to do with buildings or anything on the horizon. it is a manifestation of that image, though. known as the ponzo illusion.

He's basically saying the same thing.   But he ignores the type of terrain, a full moon usually appears bigger when rising over land vs. over the ocean, buildings and trees do enhance the illusion (they change your perception of how far away the horizon is).    But it is all part of the same illusion, think of the type of terrain as changing the angle of the perspective lines a little to make the spheres seem bigger or smaller.

Bill Murray is Polonius.  Yeah, that's a good idea.  ::)  Then Steve Zahn shows up... wow.  Good thing I'm a little drunk, 'cause...  wow.

This is the Hamlet they should have riffed on MST3K.

Watching an episode on SNL from 1990. John Goodman dressed as the Church Lady's mother looks and acts frighteningly like my Aunt Pat.
