NASA Space Place: How Far Away Is the Moon?
The Short Answer:
The Moon is an average of 238,855 miles away from Earth, which is about 30 Earths away.
Often when we see drawings of the Earth and the Moon, they look really close together. Don’t be fooled! They’re actually really far apart.

Launched in 1998, NASA Space Place’s mission is to inspire and enrich upper-elementary-aged kids’ learning of space and Earth science online through fun games, hands-on activities, informative articles and engaging short videos.

With material in both English and Spanish and resources for parents and teachers, NASA Space Place has something for everyone.
