Let me make this a simple as possible. You are in a car driving away from your house. You are the same distant from your spare tire, but yet you are going further away from your house. Our milky way galaxy is our car and it driving away, yet we are the same distant from our sun (the spare tire).

The Earths Moon moves 1 and a half inches further away each year in orbit. All Moons around all Planets do at different degrees. This is fact, but in my opinion all planets move, some closer, other further away to our sun/star. But i also believe that one day the Universe will stop expanding and start contracting in on itself, ie the millons of Black holes at the center of all Galaxys will eventually pull everything in and then turn on each other.
