What is the distance between the sun and the earth?
The Earth is 149,597,870,700 meters (92,955,807 miles) away from .
Earth revolves around the Sun in an elliptical orbit, which means that its distance from the Sun is not constant.
The maximum distance between the Earth and the Sun, when our planet is furthest away from the Sun, is called aphelion and is estimated at being ##”152,100,000 km”##.
The minimum distance between the Earth and the Sun, which is of course when our planet is closest to the Sun, is called perihelion and is estimated at being ##”147,300,000 km”##.
The distance between the Earth and the Sun is called an astronomical unit, or ##”au”##. What’s interesting about the astronomical unit is that it initially was defined as being the average between the aphelion distance and perihelion distance.
Now it is defined as being exactly ##”149,597,870.700 km”##. Youcan read more about the distance between the Earth and the Sun here:
