[/quote] Now that you mention it, it did seem rather bigger to me too, but I couldn't swear by it. The spacing in the belt seemed about right. However if our atmosphere changes, certainly our perception of how it looks will change, and there's ample evidence that our atmosphere has also changed in its density not to mention composition. Thanks for the thought in this direction. [/quote] Sorry to disappoint... But I saw someone post a similar thing yesterday, and last night I checked the angular separation between a prominent star North of Orion's belt (Betelgeuse), and one diagonally opposite below the belt (Rigel) using the setting circles on one of my equatorial telescope mounts. The figure I came up with was 18.6º - which agrees very closely with the figure given by 'Starry Night Pro' astronomical software. In short - Orion appears exactly the same size it should be. The only thing that changes, is the perception of people who don't regularly observe the sky. [/quote] There's really no disappointment to be had. First the source of knowledge has to be accounted for, and when darkness clouds over it, it would be for the foolish to trust from said source. Please don't look into the sky at daytime and see our brighter sun and hate it with the deniable malice as Ahab did. Just pretend it's not there. Spend the gold coin while there's time I'd say to you. [/quote]
In our EU, the usual nearer and stronger EM forces of the sun keep us oriented--usually.
However as we approach galactic center, the forces there are so strong that we tilt even moreso sometimes (given whatever conditions we pass through at any given time), giving that mushroom smoking Cat like grin to the moon we witness, sometimes, even out of season.
Not to mention the polar disarray the sun is also going through not only with its own solar cycles (of which are bad enough), but--again--approaching galactic center.
These are signs of our impending pole shift.
