No, the moon is much smaller than the Earth. Going by diameter the moon is 3,474 km across, and the diameter of the Earth is 12,742 km. So by diameter the moon is about 27% of the size of the Earth. As far as surface area goes, the moon is 37.9 million square km, and the Earth is 510 million square km. So by surface area the moon is about 7.4% the size of the Earth. The last way we can measure its size is by mass. The mass of the moon is 7.347 x 10^22 kg, and the mass of the Earth is 5.97x 10^24 kg. So about 12% the mass of the Earth. So any way you want to look at it, the moon is very much smaller than the Earth.

No, the moon has a diameter of 3.640 km. aprox. and the Earth is about 12.242 km., the Moon always has been smaller than the Earth. However, 3.200 years ago when a theory says that an object of the size of Mars collided with the Earth. and this object was the Moon.

Obviously the Moon lost material material, also the Earth, but never the Moon will be bigger than Earth. Try to see a moon of Pluto, it's called Charon and it's history maybe because by it has more size than half of Pluto.

If the moon was larger than earth then it would be a planet. As it does not revolve around the sun, but around the earth, it is a moon and therefore is smaller than the earth.

No and curiously enough it is said that the ratio of the difference of the diameter of the earth and moon compared to the distance from surface to surface is Pi.......

The moon is far smaller than the earth. The face of the moon is about the size of North America when laid for side to side.

The moon is not bigger than earth. It is a satellite of earth which means it orbits around a larger object.

The moon is definitely smaller than the earth which is why it orbits the earth not the other way round.
