## What is the diameter of the moon at the equator in km?

3,476.28 km.

The equatorial diameter of the Moon is 3,476.28 km.

## What is the exact diameter of the moon?

2,159.2 miles

The moon’s mean radius is 1,079.6 miles (1,737.5 kilometers). Double those figures to get its diameter: 2,159.2 miles (3,475 km), less than a third the width of Earth. The moon’s equatorial circumference is 6,783.5 miles (10,917 km).

**What is the moon’s radius at equator?**

Bulk parameters

Moon | Ratio (Moon/Earth) | |
---|---|---|

Equatorial radius (km) | 1738.1 | 0.2725 |

Polar radius (km) | 1736.0 | 0.2731 |

Volumetric mean radius (km) | 1737.4 | 0.2727 |

Ellipticity (Flattening) | 0.0012 | 0.36 |

**What is the scaled diameter of the moon?**

3480 km

The diameter of the Moon is 3480 km or 27% of the Earth’s equatorial diameter of 12,756 km. The mass of the moon is 1.23% of the mass of the Earth, or about 1/80th.

### Is the moon as big as Australia?

Australia’s diameter is 600km wider than the moon’s. The moon sits at 3400km in diameter, while Australia’s diameter from east to west is almost 4000km.

### What is the circumference of the moon?

6,786 mi

Moon/Circumference

**What is the size of a moon?**

1,079.6 mi

Moon/Radius

**Does the Moon rotate around the equator?**

But the Moon always spins at the same rotational speed. Finally, the Moon does not orbit around the Earth directly above our equator. No, the Moon’s orbit is tilted by 6.7 degrees to the Earth’s equator. So sometimes we can see more of the Moon’s south pole, and at other times, more of its north pole.

## How big is the Moon in comparison to the earth?

The Moon has a diameter of 2,159 miles (3,476 kilometers) and is about one-quarter the size of Earth. The Moon weighs about 80 times less than Earth.

## What is the equatorial radius of Pluto?

738.38 mi

Pluto/Radius

**How cold is the Moon?**

The average temperature on the Moon (at the equator and mid latitudes) varies from -298 degrees Fahrenheit (-183 degrees Celsius), at night, to 224 degrees Fahrenheit (106 degrees Celsius) during the day.

**How big is the equatorial diameter of the Moon?**

I say slightly, because we’re going to need decimals to really tell the difference. The equatorial diameter of the Moon is 3,476.28 km. And the polar diameter of the Moon is 3,471.94 km.

### How big is the Moon in Earth days?

Like most objects in the Solar System, the Moon spins on its axis, completing a day in 27.3 Earth days. Because it’s rotating, the Moon slightly flattens out. I say slightly, because we’re going to need decimals to really tell the difference. The equatorial diameter of the Moon is 3,476.28 km. And the polar diameter of the Moon is 3,471.94 km.

### How big is the Moon in miles and miles?

(Diameter of the Moon in miles: 2,159 miles) Need to put this in context? The diameter of the Earth is 12,742 km, so the Moon’s diameter is about 1/4 that of the Earth (27.3% to be exact).

**How big is the Moon from pole to pole?**

I say slightly, because we’re going to need decimals to really tell the difference. The equatorial diameter of the Moon is 3,476.28 km. And the polar diameter of the Moon is 3,471.94 km. In other words, the Moon’s diameter from side to side is 4.34 km more than its distance from pole to pole.
