OverviewPropertiesHistory of observations and measurementsLunar periodsTidal evolutionLibrationPath of Earth and Moon around SunSee alsoThe properties of the orbit described in this section are approximations. The Moon's orbit around Earth has many variations (perturbations) due to the gravitational attraction of the Sun and planets, the study of which (lunar theory) has a long history. The orbit of the Moon is a nearly circular ellipse about the Earth (the semimajo… Inverse sine parallax: 384,400 km (238,900 mi) Perigee: 363,228.9 km (225,700.0 mi), avg., (356400–370400 km) Mean distance: 385,000 km (239,000 mi) Semi-major axis: 384,748 km (239,071 mi)
