**27.3%**the size of the Earth's polar circumference.

The Moon orbits the earth every

**27.3**Earth days and turns

**10920.8**km at the equator every

**27.3**days. This equates to a speed of

**400**km/h. The Earth turns at

**100**times the rate and travels

**40,000**km per rotation. Conversely the Sun is

**400**times larger than the Moon and

**400**times further away from Earth, which is why we get to see such great eclipses.

Earth turns

**366**times each orbit of the sun, and is

**366%**the measurement of the moon at the polar circumference. The

**moon orbits earth**

**366**times every

**10,000**days.

There are

**109.2**Earth diameters across the Sun's diameter.

There are

**109.2**Sun diameters between the Earth and the Sun when it is at the furthest reach of it's orbit around the sun.

There are

**109.2 x 100**km across the circumference of the Moon.

Please feel free to check these sums and come to your own conclusions :).
