Thanks for your note to us here at TruthBook about these terms. I will do my best to define them for you.
URANTIA: “Your world, Urantia, is one of many similar inhabited planets which comprise the local universe of Nebadon.”

MORONTIA: Morontia is a term designating a vast level intervening between the material and the spiritual. It is not material or spiritual, but somewhere in the middle of those two.

The top line is for searching our whole site for specific subjects/pages (like angels, life after death, Adam and Eve, etc, etc) and the bottom line is for searching only the text of The Urantia Book for words and/or phrases.
Finally, HERE is a good 5-minute video that might also be helpful to you in understanding some of these terms and the vast distances that are involved in the universe as revealed in The Urantia Book.
