As you walk or drive along, things much closer to you, like trees and houses, appear to move between you and the Moon. it doesn’t seem to move at all and appears to be following you. This means that the moon appears in basically the same angular position with the same angular size. During the course of a month, the Moon circles once around the Earth.
