How far is the moon from earth...roughly?

-------------------------------------------------------

The Donald say: Pretty far.
-
Jim Moor say: 1.3 light seconds away.
-
Alexander say: It varies. In round numbers 250,000 miles.
-
Jeffrey K say: 238,000 miles
-
Bulldog redux say: Roughly 238,857 miles, 920 feet, four and one-half inches.
-
Ronald 7 say: About 250, 000 miles away
It pushed it there !!
-
daniel g say: Easiest way I remembered it was just short of 1/4 million miles, that is 'roughly'.
-
and light travels about 300,000 km per second
So light takes about 1.3 seconds to go from the moon to Earth
-
Intrinsic Random Event say: the moon is about 384,400 km away from the surface of the Earth. That's a fairly accurate estimate. The moon is gradually getting further away from the Earth as it orbits, very gradually. Only about 4cm every year, so, nothing that we are going to notice.
-
Formerly Peter S say: An average distance of 238,855 miles
-
mars say: Around .000000000128 pc. (parsecs).
-
Blue say: Let me take my tape measure out and measure.
-
James say: If the moon is 1 meter in diameter it will be seen at 110.64 meters away.
-
stephen say: It's definitely, roughly on the Moon. I learned it was 250,000 miles, which has been improved down to more like 225,000. But the above answers give a closer result.
-
poldi2 say: Between 362,400 and 405,600 km.
Would have taken less than 2 seconds to find that online.
-
Sharon say: perigee is about 220,000 miles, and apogee is about 252,000 miles, since its orbit is slightly elliptical
-
Hi_Satan say: 250,000 miles
-
az_lender say: 240000 miles. That's so rough that you can REMEMBER it.
-
Phil A say: Found this on the web, saying it is average distance of 238,855 miles.

"The moon's orbit around Earth is elliptical. At perigee — its closest approach — the moon comes as close as 225,623 miles (363,104 kilometers). At apogee — the farthest away it gets — the moon is 252,088 miles (405,696 km) from Earth. On average, the distance from Earth to the moon is about 238,855 miles (384,400 km).

Nancy say: 238,900 miles

Australian Assignment say: The moon's orbit around Warth is elliptical. At perigee - its closest approach - the moon comes as close as 224, 623 miles (363,104 Kilometers). at apogee - the3 farthest away from its gets - the moon is 252,088 miles (405,696 km) from Earth. On average, the distance from Earth to the moon is about 238,855 miles (384,400 km).

wobafetty say: Oh its not that far. Climb that tree over there and reach out... You'll be able to touch it. Bring some crackers and a knife. We'll have a feast.

drake say: 238,000 miles. You can measure this distance yourself during a lunar eclipse. Time how long it takes the moon to be fully covered by earth’s shadow. Let’s say it is 30 minutes. Then time how long it takes for the edge of the moon to exit the shadow. Whatever multiple this new time is of the original time is how many moon widths the shadow is. Let’s say it’s two. Then assuming the shadow’s edges are parallel to each other, the earth is two times bigger than the moon. Its actually about four times bigger.
-
STEPHEN say: You have the internet. You can look this up for yourself. Did you even try?
-
PhotonX say: So it really never occurred to you to type "distance moon earth" into your search engine? https://www.google.com/search?q=distance...

Gert say: 239,000 miles.
-
James say: not that far because it's made of cheese
