What causes these things?

Every now and then I see a new moon (the sun recently set) in the summer or early fall that looks to be very large and sitting on the horizon. Dad said when he was in Hawaii during WWII this type of phenomonon was caked a "dishpan" moon.

I recently saw what appeared to be a full red sun late one morning last week.

Do scientists know how old our "outer space" is?
