a It's inconvenient to express a distance this short (!) in light-years since it only takes light about 8 minutes to go that far. The average distance from the Earth to the Sun is 150 million km. Keep in mind that this is just an average. In reality, the Earth's orbit around the Sun is elliptical. This means that it follows the path of an ellipse around the Sun, and not a perfect circle. When the Earth is at its closest point to the Sun, which astronomers call perihelion, it's only 147 million km. And when the Earth is at its furthest point from the Sun, astronomers call this aphelion. At this point, Earth is 152 million km from the Sun.
The sun is about 1.58x10-5 light years from the earth. In other words, about 0.0000158 light years.
The earth is about 8.33 light minutes from the sun, or about 0.00016 light year.
The Earth is 8.3 light-MINUTES(0.0000152207001522070015220700152207 light years) from the Sun.
About 8 light-minutes.
An average of 1.58203628 × 10-5 light years.
The Sun is approximately 8 light minutes from Earth. We're aren't even remotely far enough away from our sun for the distance to be measured in light years.
The distance from the earth to the sun averages 499 light-seconds,or 0.0000158 light-year.
At about 93 million miles, the sun is only 8 light minutes from the Earth. That's about 1.522e-5, or 0.0000522 light years.
93,000,000 miles = 1.58203628 × 10-5 light years or 0.00001582 light years.
It is approximately 1.52207x10^-5 light years. On average it takes just under 8.5 minutes for light to reach the earth from the sun.
The distance from the sun to the earth is roughly 8.3 light-minutes,or about 0.000016 light-year.
It's 93 million miles. It takes about 8 minutes for light to travel from sun to earth.
The sun isn't even 1 light year away it is 8 "light minutes" away which works out to be about o.ooo15 light years away
A light-year is the distance light travels in a year. The distance to the Sun is about 8 light-minutes - it takes light a bit over 8 minutes to travel that distance. 1 AU (the average distance from Earth to Sun) is about 0.0000158 light-years - 15.8 micro-light-years.
Earth is about 8.33 light minutes from the Sun. In light years it is: 8.33/(365.25 x 24 x 60) = 0.0000158
The Earth is 8.2 light-MINUTES away from the Sun.
how many light years the earth travels around the sunNo. The Earth travels around the Sun in a measurement of time called a year, which is one revolution or trip around the sun: approximately 584,020,178 miles.A light year is a measurement of distance that light travels in one year, which is approximately 5.88 Trillion (5,880,000,000,000) miles!
The Procyon System is located about 11.5 light-years (ly) from our Sun, Sol
47 Ursae Majoris is about 46 light years away.
The distance between the Earth and the Sun is much less than a light year. Light travels a light year in a year. Light travels from the Sun to the Earth in about 9 minutes. Other than the Sun, the nearest other star is over 4 light years away.
About 2.5 million light years from Earth, but since the Earth and Sun are only 8 light minutes apart, there isn't that much of a difference in how far the Andromeda Galaxy is from the Sun or Earth. So the Andromeda Galaxy is about 2.5 million light years from the Sun and Earth.
Earth take 24 years to get to the Sun.......
The nearest star to Earth is the sun, at a distance of 0.000016 light years from Earth. The next nearest star, Proxima Centauri, is about 4.2 light years away.
On average about 1.58203628 × 10-5 light years.
