Yup, that’s about the supersize of it. We aren’t in any case very good at telling apart similar (but not identical) images viewed individually at different times from one another—an effect that worsens the further apart in time the viewings are. However, if you put a photo of, say, a full Moon taken at apogee next to one taken at perigee using exactly the same camera, lenses and settings, the one at perigee would show a noticeably larger Moon.

And next year (I confidently predict) we'll hear that Mars is going to be at its closest point to earth in thirteen thousand years, and will appear as large as the full moon. :-)

That one was somewhat quieter this year. My FB at least.
