Wintertime can sometimes look very interesting. A hasty person could start thinking that the sun is actually closer to the earth than the moon.
Well, the sun is brighter than the moon, so wouldn't you expect it to be closer? Also, some stars are brighter than, say, Saturn, so maybe that is why it is sometimes thought that certain planets are further away than the stars.
So much to think about...
