The same way that in the first movie Delta-Vega moved from the edge of the Galaxy to within viewing distance with the naked eye of Vulcan.
Meh. I just assumed - as somebody else here speculated - that Nero's devastating exchange with Klingon forces, the destruction of Vulcan and the attack on Earth instilled a lot of fear and paranoia in the High Council and forced the Empire to strip mine Praxis a whole lot faster than they did in the Prime timeline, leading to the moon's shattering over 30 years earlier than in the original history.
