Just a thought.
In other words...stick an object in the sky the size of the earth...in the location of the moon...and Im sure it will appear quite a lot bigger than the moon.
So again, to see a tiny earth from the moon is interesting.
But then again, the whole horizon stuff can be tricky...would have to compare other moon to earth pics.
