The moon is slowly drifting away from Earth at a rate of about 1.5 inches per year.
This is due to the gravitational pull between the two celestial bodies.
As the moon moves further away, it's having an impact on Earth's tides.
The moon's drifting could also have an impact on Earth's rotation, which could affect our climate.
Scientists are closely monitoring the moon's movement to better understand its impact on our planet.
