    That's irrelevent if the "camera" is located far away. Once again, the
same thing is done in live action films rather frequently for effect. The
camera is so far away that the characters appear relatively unzoomed
(technically all shots are zooms, it's just a matter of how much.) while the
moon or sun appears huge.

    Another possibility, but I just don't see any real need for exotic
explanations (But hey, believe what you like!) I'm gonna stick with the idea
of their moon being about the same size and distance as ours. Works better for
me personally.
