Gravitational field line

Where on an imaginary gravitational field line between Earth and moon, a mass would have no weight neither due Earth nor due to moon?

If you mean when the gravitational force is zero, then you just need to equate

FEarth and FMoon for a mass m and solve for the distance.

Since the gravity of the moon is 1/6 that of Earth , does it follow that the distance where there is no gravity on the object is 1/6 the distance between moon and Earth, starting off from the moon?
