The earth removed from the Sun at the farthest distance

Cary Marshall | 09 July, 2018, 00:23

The sun and the Earth are now at a distance of three million miles from each other.

The maximum removal point of the planet from the star is called aphelion. At the time of passage of the aphelion the Sun will have the smallest apparent diameter. The Sun is also not at the geometric centre of Earth's orbit, so the closest and farthest points are not in the opposite ends of the calendar either.

However, this does not affect the heat or cold on Earth, say NASA experts.

The Northern Hemisphere is experiencing summer because it is tilted toward the sun. Earth's orbit is not a ideal circle so the distance from the sun varies through the year.

Our planet travels around the sun in an elliptical orbit.

A complete revolution around the Sun is completed in 365 days 6 hours 9 minutes and 10 seconds.

At 5:46pm this afternoon, Earth will be 94,507,803 miles away from the sun, which is more than 1.5 million miles further than the average distance of 93 million miles.

At periphelion, Earth is about 147.1 million kilometers from the Sun, which is the closest point to the Sun.
