Earth To Moon Distance | How long does it take to reach there?
What is the distance between the moon and the earth?
As per the data obtained by the scientists and researchers the average distance has been estimated at 384,403 kilometers i.e. 238,857 miles
The moon is moving due to which its distance from the earth is sometimes more and sometimes less. The average distance of 384,403 kilometers i.e. 238,857 miles has been marked by scientists as semi-major axis To calculate 384,403 kilometers (238,857 mi), scientists calculated the average data between the Moon’s orbital period between its closest and maximum distance from Earth
It is the average between the minimum distance of the Moon from the Earth (perihelion point) which is 363,104 kilometers i.e. 225,622 miles and the maximum distance ois 406,696 kilometers i.e. 252,088 miles (periphery point)
When the Moon is on its closest axis to the Earth its brightness is about 30 percent more than that of the zenith point.
How long does it take to reach the moon from the earth?
Itdepends on the speed of the plane we are traveling in
ESA SMART-1, the slowest spacecraft sent from Earth to the Moon, reached the Moon after 1 year, 1 month and 2 weeks
NASA’s New Horizons, the fastest aircraft so far, covered the distance in about 8 hours and 35 minutes
This is the shortest time ever taken to travel between the Earth and the Moon
