2 you spelt furthest wrong
When the Earth is at its farthest distance from the Sun it is at aphelion.
Why does the Northern hemisphere winter not occur when the earth is farthest from the sun at aphelion?
the tilting of the earths axis with respect to the sun is a much greater influence on the strength of the sun's rays than the distance between sun and earth
Earth is at its maximum distance from the sun in July. In 2012, it was farthest from the sun on July 4th or 5th.
2000 feet away
Aphelion is the point at which the Earth (or any other object) is at its farthest distance from the Sun. The term "perihelion" is used for that point at the closest approach to the Sun.
The largest distance between Earth and Mercury is when they are at opposite ends of the Sun. So the farthest they can be is 0.38+1 = 1.38 AU.
While it may seem counter-intuitive, it occurs in the summer during July. The actual date changes from year to year. The point at which the Earth is farthest from the sun is known as its aphelion.
Antarctica is the pole that is farthest away from the sun when the earth is at it's farthest distance from the sun during it's yearly elliptical orbit.
The closest distance from the earth to the sun is about 147 kilometers. This figure changes all the time and at its farthest, the sun is about 152 kilometers away.
Aphelion 152,098,232 km Perihelion 147,098,290 km
Since the moon orbits Earth, it is always about the same distance from the sun as Earth is. At its farthest point (aphelion), Earth is about 94 million miles from the sun. The moon's orbit around Earth can add about 250,000 miles to that if it reaches its farthest point from Earth (apogee) during the full moon phase. This is a difference about 0.27% the Earth's distance tot he sun.
The Earth reaches "aphelion", its farthest distance from the Sun, around July 4 each year.
About 92.9 million miles (149,476,000km). The sun is farthest in July and closest in January.
The distance between the Sun and the Moon is not related to the temperature on Earth.
No, it does not. We in the north are currently enjoying our summer season, and we are around the time when earth is farthest away from the sun. Aphelion is in early July. It is earth's tilt on its axis and not the planet's distance from the sun that governs the seasons.
The Earth reaches its aphelion (farthest distance from the Sun) about July 4 each year, at which point the Earth is 152,097,701 km away from the Sun.
Neptune is the remotest of the eight planets, and its distance is 30 astronomical units, which means its distance from the Sun is 30 times the Earth's distance from the Sun.
It varies - the moon orbits the Earth so the distance will change depending on Earth's distance from the sun as well as the moon's distance from the Earth. The minimum distance from the moon to the sun is when the Earth is closest to the sun and the moon is in new moon phase (meaning its closer to the sun than the Earth). The distance from the moon to the sun is: Earth's distance… Read More
The distance from Mercury to the Earth varies greatly as both planets orbit the Sun. At its closest approach, Mercury is about 77 million kilometers (48 million miles) from Earth*. At its farthest, about 222 million kilometers (138 million miles). *The average distance from the Sun for Mercury is about 58 million kilometers, and Earth's is about 150 million kilometers. So the average distance between their orbits is about 92 million kilometers (57 million miles)… Read More

do you mean when the Earth is farthest away from the Sun? If so, then this occurs at an event called 'aphelion,' when a body is the farthest from its star in its orbit. Recently this has been and will be happening on July 4th. (Note--distance from the Sun has nothing to do with seasons. That is because of our axial tilt.)
That is true. The orbit of the Earth around the sun is ellipitical, and the Earth is farthest from the sun on July 4th. This is slightly ironic, since that is when the northern hemisphere has the warmest weather. But the axial tilt has a greater effect than the variation in distance from the sun (which is only a minor variation).
No, it ranges from 147,098,074 km to 152,097,701 km. Curiously, the Earth is closest to the Sun in January, and farthest away in July.
About 152,097,701 km according to Wikipedia. A link is at the bottom.
Slightly more or less than 92 million miles.
Yes, the Earth's orbit is an ellipse. We are closest to the Sun on January 4th and farthest at July 4th. The difference in distance is negligible compared to the distance to the Sun and does not affect us significantly.
Currently, winter occurs in the northern hemisphere when Earth is closets to the Sun. But when the axis tilts toward Vega, winter will occur in the northern hemisphere when earth is farthest from the sun, and summer will occur when earth is closests to the sun.
The Earth is the 6th farthest planet from the Sun. Neptune is the farthest.
The distance between the Earth and the sun is greatest during summer solstice winter solstice aphelion perihelion?
Aphelion -- the point on its orbit when the Earth is farthest from the sun Perihelion -- the point on its orbit when the Earth is closest to the sun so == == == ==
the farthest distance is 154863553 the closest is BTW 128402967
In the year 1950 what was the distance of earth to the sun and is it exactly the same in the year 2009?
The distance between the Earth and the Sun varies from day to day. The Earth is closest to the Sun on January 4, (plus or minus one day) and farthest away from the Sun on July 4. There is very little difference from year to year.
The Earth is farthest away from the sun actually in July and closest in January. A+: Aphelion :)
The average distance from the Earth to the Sun in the course of a year = 93 million miles and there are 5280 feet in a mile. (93,000,000 x 5,280) = 491,040,000,000 feet (about 491 billion feet) Of course, this varies during the year, with the Earth closest to the Sun in January, and farthest from the Sun in July.
The exact distance between the Earth and the Sun varies with its position in its orbit, which is elliptical. The average distance between the Earth and the Sun is about 93 million miles or about 150 million kilometers. This distance is also called 1 astronomical unit (AU). Around the first week of July (Aphelion - when the Earth is the farthest from the Sun), the distance is about 94.4 million miles or 152 million kilometers… Read More
At its furthest, Saturn is 9.58 Astronomical Units (AU) from the Sun or about 1,353,572,956 km. (An AU is the average distance of the Earth from the Sun. )
The distance from the center of the earth to the center of the moon is about 238,837 miles. That distance varies somewhat, because the moon doesn't follow a perfect circular orbit; instead it has an elliptical orbit. At the closest point, the moon is 225,622 miles from the earth; while at its farthest, is 252,088 miles. The sun is about 92,955,820.5 miles from the earth. At that distance, it takes about 8 1/2 minutes for… Read More
distance form earth to sun is 1 A.U(astronomical unit): Neptune has an elliptical orbits: so at perihelion (closest to sun) : 29.8 A.U and at aphelion (farthest from sun): 30.3 A.U
The Moon is a satellite of Earth, while Titan is a satellite of Saturn. The distance between the Moon and Titan will depend on where the Moon is in its own orbit, where the Earth is in its orbit around the Sun, Saturn's orbit around the Sun, and Titan's orbit around Saturn, because all of these bodies - Earth, moon, Saturn and Titan - are all moving. The closest they would normally come is when… Read More
The solstice marks a position in the sky for the Sun. There are two a year and they indicate the furthest points of the tilt of the Earth in relationship to the Sun. In the Summer it is the closest and Winter is the farthest.
The Earth's orbit around the sun is not a perfect circle, so our distance from the sun is not always the same. There's a closest point and a farthest point. The closest point happens sometime during the first couple of days of January each year. The closest distance is 91,402,640 miles. The farthest point happens sometime during the first couple of days of July each year. The farthest distance is 94,509,460 miles.
The solstices are determined by the distance the Earth is from the sun in its orbit. Winter is when the sun is farthest away relative to the Earth's tilt. Summer occurs when the opposite is true.
Aphelion (earth's greatest distance from the sun) occurs in July. This year it is July 4th. Next year (2010) it will be July 6th.
The whole Earth is farthest from the sun during the first few days of July.
The exact distance between Earth and the Sun varies with its position in its orbit, which is elliptical. The average distance (the mean distance) between the Earth and the Sun is about 150 million kilometers (93 million miles). The average distance from the Earth to the Sun is also called 1 astronomical unit (or AU). This is established as 149, 597, 870.7 kilometers (92,955,887.6 miles). Aphelion (when the Earth is the farthest from the Sun) occurs around… Read More
Earth reaches perihelion on January 3, 2007. The Earth-Sun distance will be 147,093,602 km. Aphelion, the greatest distance from the Sun, occurs on July 7, 2007, when the Earth-Sun distance will be 152,097,053 km. Earth's orbit is not a perfect circle. It is elliptical, or slightly oval-shaped. This means there is one point in the orbit where Earth is closest to the Sun, and another where Earth is farthest from the Sun. The closest point… Read More
pluto is the farthest planet to the earth
When it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere, we are farthest away from the sun, at the maximum distance of 152 million km (94.5 million miles). When it is summer in the Southern Hemisphere, we are closest, at the minimum distance of 146 million km (91 million miles) The average distance between the sun and the earth is 149 million kilometers (93 million miles).
The earth is farthest from the sun in early July. This may be surprising to northerners. It is perfectly sensible to our friends in the southern hemisphere.
Earth is farthest from the sun around July 3. That's during summer in the northern hemisphere, and winter in the southern.
The Earth's perihelion (closest point to the Sun) is in January, usually around January 4th. The distance is about 147.5 million kilometers, compared to the farthest distance of 152.6 million kilometers in July.
