Roy, no big deal, but there IS a scene when he actually is looking at the moon 
and commenting: 
"Green came up, bigger and brighter than we ever see it on Blue.  Or want to, 
either." (pg 714 in SFBC BOTSS, chapter 17)

He is talking about Lune here.  We are saying the same thing.  I'm kind of 
intrigued by the recent idea that Lune could have near urth gravity.  
But doesn't the fact that at 30,000 leagues Green is still not as big as Lune 
indicate that Green can't be much bigger?  I mean, Lune would have to be 
really damned close if Green really were larger at all, and it can't be THAT
