The Moon is in a synchronous rotation with Earth, which means that one side of the Moon (the "near side") is permanently turned towards Earth.
For escaping at the surface of the Moon from the Moon and the Earth, the escape velocity is the square root of the sum of the squares of the separate escape velocities of 2.4 and 1.5 km/s, or 2.8 km/s.

 The Moon Illusion
When an object of constant size is seen near the horizon at A, and then near the zenith at B, we judge that both are "on" the apparent sky bowl, and therefore the object seems to be at A' and B', with A' being farther away than B', and is therefore judged to be larger.
Objects in the visual field that are contiguous to the distant objects have the greatest effect on size judgments.
Some studies have asked subjects "which moon seems nearer", which seems an unfair question, but still one cannot deny that we have mental processes that produce at least an approximate subconscious judgment of "near and far" for things in the sky, and this is certainly relevant to the sky illusions.
