From The Earth to The Moon...


A new NASA photo, taken from some three million miles away by the OSIRIS-Rex craft....shows the earth and its Moon in one frame, making it easier to understand how far apart they are. NASA says 30 earths would fit in between the two places in space.

The distance is 238,900 Miles.

thanks, Tim! The way I've visualized (imagined) the distance, I would have placed the moon about a third of the way out from its actual position.

I would have been way off....and have no again been reminded how relatively insignificant we are compared to the Universe...or eve the solar system! Thanks for the comment Charles.
