There is a common misconception that the Moon is very close to Earth. This image however, shows the actual approximate average distance to the Moon, and also the Earth and Moon's size in proper scale to each other.
It's pretty amazing how big the Moon looks in the sky despite how far away it is. =P

The Moon will continue slowly drifting away from Earth for about 50 billion years, when Earth's gravity will start pulling it back down.
