Puzzling file size change (HS50)

In taking pictures yesterday I noticed an abrupt change in file size....what could have caused this? I'm talking about file sizes going from 6.5-7.0 MB to 2.5-3.5 MB from file 4154 to 4155 and I didn't change any settings or anything else, and the resolution is still L size JPEG FINE. The pictures were taken a minute apart and the file size was halved and this new file size has continued tonight.

edit- could it be because I'm taking pictures of the moon? I dont get it because the behavior is the total opposite of my HS20 which keeps file sizes around 6.0-6.5 MB with the moon, why would they be 2.5-3.5 MB with the HS50?
