The ratio of their diameters is almost the same as the ratio of their distances from Earth - let's say on New Moon day position. Sun is 400 times bigger & 400 times more distant compared to the Moon. The ratio of the diameter to distance (to Earth) for both Moon & Sun, is about 0.00875 that can be called "Tan" & its argument (angle) comes out as roughly ½º.

The distance of the planets from the Earth varies as each orbits the Sun at different rates.

Radius of the sun: 696,342 km.

Radius of the moon: 1738.14 km

Distance between each planet and Earth: constantly changing since the Earth and the planets are orbiting the sun.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun (one the side under physical characteristics)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moon (on the side where is says Equatorial radius)

An distance from earth to other planets differ quite a lot depending what time of the year it is and where in orbit other planets are. But you can easily find minimum distances just by googleing similar phare: "Distance from earth to [planet of your choice]"
