Scale of the Moon

In case you are wondering, this map overlay by redditor boredboarder8 was constructed to show scale, not ownership. However, we were the first to land and plant a flag. But back to scale: the circumference of the moon is 6784 miles and the widest distance in the lower 48 states is 2,892 miles (California to Maine). Incidentally, Pluto is smaller than the Earth's moon. Link -via Geekologie
