It varies with each lunar orbit. However, a mean distance is approximately 225,000 miles.

Like the Earth and the Sun, the Moob orbits the Earth in an ellipse (NOT a circle). The Earth being at one of the foci of the ellipse. This ellipse can vary between a very narrow ellipse to nearly circular; it is normal Newtonian mechanics. As a consequence of this variability the apogee and perigee can vary too.

When the moon is at apogee it is how far away from earth?

right answer is-252,088 miles


Is the moon at apogee near or far from the earth?

Its far, apo means up/away


Is the moon apogee near to or far from the earth?

"Apogee" means the point in the moon's orbit where it's farthest from earth.


How far is the earth from the moon at perigee At apogee?

its closer at perigee than at apogee.


Is a moon at apogee near to or far from the earth?

At Apogee it is furthest from the Earth. At Perigee it is nearest to the Earth. The mean distance of the moon from the Earth is 242,000 miles. However, the Moon moves in an ellipsoid path., with the Earth at one of the foci of the ellipse. Also its orbit is not co-planar with the Earth's orbit about the Sun, but slightly angled. As a consequence the Moon appears to move faster/slower during the lunar month, and, phases discounted, appears to be larger/smaller. Because of non-co-planarity we do not see a lunar/solar eclipse every months.


Is the moon at apogee near or far away from earth?

The word "apogee" is used to describe the farthest point away from Earth, while perigee is the closest point to Earth. This is used to describe the parameters of satellite orbits around the Earth. Both values may change due to gravitational variations.The word apogee is the adaptation of the term apsis which is the term for a farthest distance from some object, with gee (geo) meaning Earth.


What is the orbital far point called?

For objects in orbit around the sun, it's the aphelion. For objects in Earth orbit, it's the 'apogee', and in orbit around the moon, it's the 'apolune'.


What is meant by apogee and pengee?

Apogee means Far from the earth..... It's not Pengee its Perigee... Perigee means near from the earth...


How far away form the earth is the moon in km?

How far away is the sun in miles?

It varies - the moon orbits the Earth so the distance will change depending on Earth's distance from the sun as well as the moon's distance from the Earth. The minimum distance from the moon to the sun is when the Earth is closest to the sun and the moon is in new moon phase (meaning its closer to the sun than the Earth). The distance from the moon to the sun is: Earth's distance at perihelion - moon's distance from Earth at apogee. This works out to 146,692,370 km. The maximum distance from the moon to the sun is when the Earth is farthest from the sun and the moon is in full moon phase. The distance from the moon to the sun is Earth's distance at aphelion + moon's distance from Earth at apogee. This works out to 150,503,400 km.
