Astronomers use the Small Angle Formula to quantify this idea: for a given diameter, the farther away an object is, the smaller its angular size (also known as its apparent size). In this video, we show an example of the Small Angle Formula by comparing the apparent sizes of Supermoons versus Micromoons.
