Moon diameter in degress?


Recommended Posts

SO that means, the Rosette nebula(which I'm yet to see), with apparent dimensions of 1.3 degrees (Source :Wikipedia), is approximately twice the size of the moon?

Yep, there are plenty of objects up there that lcover a bigger area than the moon but they are usually hard to see and the figures given include very faint extremities. Don't expect to see a Rosette shaped object twice the size of the moon.:)
