Title: Moon.

Average distance from Earth to the Moon is 230 thousand Miles [370 thousand Km].

The unseen side is often inaccurately called the "dark side", in reality, it is illuminated exactly as often as the near side: once per lunar day [One Moon day = 27.33 Earth days]. The Moon rotates at the same speed as it orbits the Earth, this is why we always see the same face. On the "dark side", the geography features far fewer impact craters than the side we can see from Earth.
