Why does the moon sometimes appear giant and a orange red color near the horizon?

Why does the moon look bigger at horizon or skyline than at other times e.g. at moonrise and moonset. This effect can also be observed with the sun. And I think the difference between the distance at horizon and other time is not too much to be the cause of this effect. So what is the reason behind this?
