<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Moon) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Moon. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 34.4220, Longitude: -90.4884       In this case, the coordinates for Moon have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
