# Coincidence

30 three to eleven all round From the surface of the Earth, the Sun and the Moon appear the same size. According to modern muggle cosmology this is just a coincidence, but any good wizard will tell you the balance between these two primary bodies is clear proof of very ancient magic. The size of the Moon compared to the Earth is 3 to 11 99.9. What this means is that if you draw down the Moon to the Earth, then the circle through the centre of the heavenly Moon will have a circumference equal to the perimeter of a square enclosing the Earth. The ancients seem to have known about this, and hidden it in the definition of the mile opposite, after Michell Ward. The EarthMoon proportion is also precisely invoked by our two neighbours, Venus and Mars Venus shown dancing round Mars below. The closestfarthest distance ratio that each experiences of the other is, incredibly, 311 99.9. The Earth and the Moon sit in between them, perfectly echoing this beautiful local spacial ratio. 311 happens to be 27.3 and the Moon orbits the Earth every 27.3 days, the same period as the average rotation period of a sunspot. The Sun and Moon do seem very much the unified couple.
