Why the fuck Sun looks larger at sunrise and sunset
And no, I did know this for a long time and it says it is an illusion played out by our brain, but nobody thinks about how the fuck cameras get into this illusion aswell.
Care to explain?
And no it is not first grade science thought in schools, they teach you total bullshit in there, it is not about education or something.
If you have other answer than "illusion", say it or else stfu.

Anytime celestial bodies are closer to the horizon, they appear to be bigger, it is just an optical illusion.

This is why OP..it is because you have something to compare its' size to,like a Tree or House.

Because the sun is getting closer to earth and it's going to swallow us up..what do you think.

You have to be a right numbskull to ask such a question.

Re: Why the fuck Sun looks larger at sunrise and sunset
I'll have to get a baseball cap sometime, have an object hanging from the rim (something clear and steady) and look at the moon (with 1 eye), and trace a circle around it. Then, later, when it's higher in the sky -see if it appears any larger (or smaller) than it did when I traced it's size earlier. Or find some way to take a time-lapse photo.

I understand this, but there's also the effect of it appearing to have a darker color, sometimes with it being distorted -like it's being stretched on both sides, or flattened when closer to the horizon. eta: ah, refraction. ;-)

In simplest terms, the atmosphere acts as a magnifying lens on your horizons

Because it is low over the horizon when it rises and sets. Same with the moon and the brighter planets like Venus.

has always been this way, even the stars and planets do. Google may be your friend as to how to explain it. it simply IS otherwise. Cameras see what you see, because its not an "illusion". but cameras if you will notice, sometimes see more than our eyes can too.

Get an education. Several people has answered your 1rst grade question correctly. Yes it is a magnification effect of the atmosphere. Your camera has to look via the atmosphere also. Don't think that ir is just an illusion of our brains.

Its actually growing... the sun is expanding and increasing in size.. stop and let this sit within your intuition for a moment and you will feel the truth of it.. ignore the naysayers.. its no longer a 'yellow' sun, and its bigger.. there is no denying truth..
