How far is the moon in light-years from earth?

The average distance between the Earth and the Moon is 384 400 km (238 855 miles).

Light travels at 300,000 kilometres per second, so it takes about 1.3 seconds for light to travel from the Moon back to the Earth. In other words, the Moon is 1.3 light-seconds away from the Earth.
