Moon Moving Away From Earth

The moon is slowly creeping away from Earth. It’s a nearly insignificant displacement but it moves 3.8 cm further into space every year. This has been determined since the 1970’s using laser ranging measurements.

When the moves 14,600 miles into space, we will no longer see a total eclipse of the sun. Don’t worry about that though because it’s going to take 500 million years until that happens.
