How Life Would Look If the Moon Was as Close to Earth as the ISSEric Limer10/11/13 7:00pmFiled to: Watch thisastronomyspacethe moonISSmoonanimations735EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink Even though it might not look like much when it's so far away, the Moon is pretty huge. In fact, if it was a little closer—as close as the ISS for example—it would monopolize the entire sky. Yetipc1, apparently a serious astronomy nerd, took the liberty of figuring out what it would look like if ol' Luna was a mere 270 miles out, instead of the 238,855 miles it actually is. Suffice it to say it looks a bit...different. Destiny, anyone?
