What It Would Look Like If the Moon Orbited the Earth at the Same Distance as the International Space Station

YouTube user yeti dynamics created a fascinating animation in late 2013 that looks at what it would look like if the Moon orbited the Earth at the same distance as the International Space Station (ISS). The Moon traditionally orbits the Earth at a distance of around 384,000 kilometers, or 238,000 miles, and the ISS typically orbits at a distance of 420 kilometers, or 260 miles.
