It's all about positioning and relationships within the frame Scott.
If your moon was to be on an absolute third, it would nave too much negative space above it, in virtual terms sending it deeper into space and away from the viewer. The viewer's eyes would also have more space to explore.
It seems more strongly associated to the land sitting there a little higher, there is less space for it to drift away into.
