    "the distance between the moon and the sun will have changed by
    approximately one lunar diameter"
    How's that?
    
    Certainly, you are welcome to go to the article (
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lunar_distance_%28navigation%29 )and edit it
    (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Lunar_distance_%28navigation%29&a
    ction=edit ) in any way you think you will improve it.

    Add:  "as measured from the sun", perhaps?
