(a.k.a. Luna) (median of semi-major axis, or apigee, and semi-minor axes, or perigee)
The orbit of the Moon around the Earth is elliptical, with an average distance of 225,899,900 smoots from center-to-center. About 428.376 kg of moon rock have been cataloged on the Earth, from the American Apollo and Soviet Luna Programs, and from samples that have been extracted from meteorites.
It's about 90,000 times as tall as a Golf Tee
In other words, the height of a Golf Tee is 0.0000110 times 2,870 smoots.
The most common golf tee size and the length preferred for iron and most wood clubs is 0.032 smoots tall. The tee did not come into common use until it was promoted by professional golfers Walter Hagen and Joe Kirkwood, as part of a marketing effort by the patent-holder of the well-known, "Reddy Tee."
