How many AU is Saturn from earth?
Hmmmm, It's distance from Earth is not as constant as its distance from the Sun. You can find the answers to you question on wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/), but you'll have to do a little work. The wikipedia entry for Saturn gives its distance from the sun in meters, so you'll have to convert meters to AU. If you don't know what AU is, you can look that up on wikipedia, and once you know what AU is, you will understand why you also need to know the distance from the Earth to the sun in meters. That can be found on the Earth page. Like I said, the distance from Saturn to Earth varies. Consider that approximately once each year (actually a little less often than that), Saturn and Earth are both lined up on the same side of the Sun, and just as often, they are lined up on opposite sides of the sun. If we pretend that that both planets have circular orbits, then you can see that the distance from Saturn to Earth is the same as the distance from Saturn to the Sun plus or minus one Earth-Sun radius. Hope this information helps
