# What is the SUN radius and MOON radius and distance between each planet from the Earth?

Relevance

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/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]"
