1) This could be a real eye-opener! It seems that the Moon is much bigger, but it is no larger than continental United States.
2) Alternatively, here is the continental U.S.A. floating in space instead of the Moon.

    1. If you go outside and look at the moon, multiply its diameter by 4 and imagine a disc that size, that’s how big the Earth would look from the moon’s surface. Must be the coolest thing any living person’s ever actually seen.


    2. “here is the continental U.S.A. floating in space instead of the Moon”

      Great! How soon can we achieve this, and will we be able to stop you all flying back to Earth?


    3. The moon has a little more surface area than what all of africa does. Lots of room to make moon cities.


    4. The second picture can’t convey what it’s trying to convey, because you can’t get a sense of scale of the night sky from a photograph — they just can’t recreate the panorama. The U.S. looks huge in that picture, but the moon it replaces can be made to look any size depending on the angle of the lens and the zoom.
      Here’s how to get a better idea of how big the U.S. would be in the sky: The width of the moon is about half a degree of your 360 degree horizon. Your pinky finger held at arms length is about 1 degree, so you can say the U.S. would be about as wide as the base of your fingernail.
