Many folks way over-estimate how big the moon appears in the sky. It is roughly the apparent size of an aspirin tablet held at arm's length. (Allowing for variations in arm length, slight variations in the apparent size of the moon and [possibly]the size of aspirin tablets!)1/4 of the diameter of the Moon.
We tend to get fooled by seeing pictures of the big huge full moon:
More accurate moon-size pics don't tend to get made into posters or put in art galleries:
To be expected, memories are fungible, which is of course one of the major problems of trying to figure something out based on eye witness testimony alone.need to look back and find all the prior articles and mentions of the incident, because although Fravor says in the recent hearings that the tic tac was first spotted at 20,000 feet.....I'm quite sure I remember 25,000 feet from somewhere reliable. The height seems to have changed !
