distance = diameter of moon / diameter of penny assuming the penny completely covers a full moon when you hold it up .... the distance objects are away from each other are proportional to their relative sizes example: the sun is 400 times larger than moon but they appear to be same size (eclipse) because the sun is 400 times farther away

wait i forgot you need to know how far you are holding the penny away from you --> distance to moon / distance to penny = diameter of moon/ diameter of penny

Is there any way you can do this using trig? What other possible measurements could you make?
