It was 14% larger not because of it's being near the horizon, but because it was nearest Earth at that time. A Guy
Very interesting. Thanks -- You might be seeing short posts like this in the near future as I near 2000 posts.

Came back from a wedding about midnight last night and it was very bright but since it was high in the sky it didn't look very big. Didn't have to turn on the outside lights to let the dog out.

Too much cloud here again, thought we might have been OK today as it's been quite a nice sunny day but now it's just cloud with nothing to see.
