This week will be the full moon (June 22) and the moon will be lower in the sky than it has been in 18 years creating what is known as the moon illusion.... the moon will look huge. Because this is an optical illusion it won't look the same if you photograph it.

More information on this phenomenon is available at http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2005 ... ?list68344
