I have seen below statement, and it doesn't sound right:
The Sun and Moon seem to have the same size because of this amazing coincidence: the moon is 400 times smaller than the Sun and 400 closer than the Sun.
Checking 400 from this source:
The Moon's distance from the Earth: 384,000 km and diameter: 3,480 km
The Sun's distance from the Earth: 149,000,000 km and diameter of 1,392,000 km
Distance: 149,000,000 / 384,000 = 388.02, OK almost 400
Size: 1,392,000 / 3,480 = 400 spot on.
Does being X times further make it look X times smaller?
I have seen this post but not sure it answer my question: Can the apparent equal size of sun and moon be explained or is this a coincidence?
Note: First time post, let me know if the post is suitable.
