The Moon looms above at an average of 384,400 km (238,885 mi) away.

Likewise, Earth looms above the Sun at 147,098,074 km (91402505.6 mi) away at even the closest part of the year.

Assuming you haven't left high orbit, the closest, of course, is the Earth, anywhere between nothing and halfway to the Moon.

Conclusion:

The Sun!

The sun is about 150 million kilometres away from earth. The moon is about 300,000 kilometres away from the earth and revolves around the Earth so that it is sometimes closer to the sun and sometimes further away than the Earth is.

No because the sun, although it may not look that far away, is further away than the moon to earth. If the sun was between the earth and the moon, our climates on earth would be much hotter!
