How much moon far away from earth

Posted by Prateek Kumar
                MOON FAR AWAY FROM EARTH.


                 You might be surprised.

Don’t be fooled! They’re actually really far apart. The moon is an average of 238,855 miles (384,400 km) away. How far away is that? That’s 30 Earths.

                   Average distance?

   Why mention the average distance? Well, the    moon is not always the same distance away    from Earth. The orbit is not a perfect circle.

   When the moon is the farthest away, it’s        252,088 miles away. That’s almost 32 Earths.    When it's closest, the moon is 225,623 miles    away.
