The asteroid belt is between Mars & Jupiter, about 22 light minutes away from the sun (the earth, by contrast, is about 8 light minutes from the sun).

It is not that far away. The asteroid belt lies between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.

The asteroid belt is a vaguely-defined region between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. The nearer edge of the belt is about 15 light-MINUTES away from the Earth.

The asteroid belt is located 300-600x106km (or 2-4AU) away from the sun.

Yes, Uranus is much farther away from the Sun than the asteroid belt.

Yes. It gets light from the sun.

The Asteroid Belt is one of three asteroid formations in the solar system orbiting the star Sol. The Asteroid Belt does not occur Earth's atmosphere. In fact, it is more than 200,000,000 kilometers away from Earth.

The asteroid belt is located between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. As such, the outer planets (or Jovian planets) can be said to be outside the asteroid belt. That is, they are located beyond the belt and are therefore further away from the sun than the belt.

The asteroid belt does not have moons: it has asteroids, which is why it is called the asteroid belt!

No one knows for sure. But it is highly probable that the asteroid belt was formed within a few million years of the birth of our Solar System. The Sun was formed about 4.57 billion years ago, so the asteroid belt formed shortly after.

Our moon is not in the asteroid belt. No planet's moon is in the asteroid belt or it would not be a moon.

Mars is not in the asteroid belt. The Asteroid Belt is between Mars and Jupiter.

The asteroid belt in our solar system is located in between the orbits of mars and jupiter. Jupiter is located on the side furthest away from Earth so you could say its the outside.

It can get as cold as it can. The farther the planet with an asteroid belt is from the sun, the colder the asteroid belt gets :)
