Earth will be closest to the sun on Wednesday

The earth comes closer to the sun this Wednesday in the early evening than at any other time in the year. The distance between the earth and the sun is then still 147.1 million kilometers.

In winter, of all times, the earth is closest to the sun in its orbit. However, the proximity to the sun has little to do with heat and cold on earth. (archive image)

When the earth is furthest from the sun again in July, the distance is 152.1 million kilometers, as SRF Meteo wrote.

The fact that the distance between the sun and the earth changes is due to the slightly elliptical orbit on which the earth orbits the sun in one year. Earth will be closest to the sun on Wednesday at 5:17 p.m., the statement said.
