Sphere Sizes Category: Size and Distance | Added: April 9, 2011 | 17 comments This picture shows two spheres in a brick cul-de-sac, but how large is the sphere in the foreground compared to the sphere in the background ? Another example of the Ebbinghaus illusion these two spheres are actually exactly the same size, the sphere in the background only looks larger because of the perspective in the picture - an observer expects the sphere in the background to be bigger.

Posted by Meenaka on November 8, 2011 that's exactly right bcos if a image comes from a longer distance its appears to be large and if it reaches near it looks to be smaller that the previous so no confusion the concept is right....

Posted by Kitty on February 12, 2012 They don't look the same size, and I used my fingers to measure and it's not right...lol my mind is jacked up.
Posted by Slimshady on February 21, 2012 look at the shadow of the bagkground sphere. also look at the shadow on the left side wall. the shadow on the left side wall is the size of the front one so there would technically be your final answer.
Posted by KalaAzurehowl on March 17, 2012 its just the distence that makes it look the same size like the sun and moon during an eclipse lol
