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). However, the moon is moving away from Earth at a rate of about 1.5 inches (4 cm) per year.
