Tonight the Earth will be removed from the Sun at the maximum distance
On Friday, July 6, Earth will be removed from the Sun at the maximum distance that will be 152 095 566 kilometers. It will happen at 18:46 Kyiv time, writes with reference to
The maximum removal point of the planet from the star is called aphelion. This is the marking point of the orbit of a celestial body moving around the Sun. At the time of passage of the aphelion the Sun will have the smallest apparent diameter.
There is the perception that the farther the Earth is from the sun the colder and it has to be winter. But it’s July and summer is in full swing, although the Earth is the furthest point of its orbit, but it does not affect the change of seasons.
The seasons change because the axis of rotation of the Earth has a tilt to the plane of earth’s orbit, not the fact that the distance from the earth to the Sun varies. Now the Earth is farther from the Sun than in winter our planet moves slower in its orbit than to move in six months. This means that the astronomical summer (the time from summer solstice to autumnal equinox) and continues in the Northern hemisphere longer than winter for five days.
A complete revolution around the Sun is completed in 365 days 6 hours 9 minutes and 10 seconds. The earth moves around the Sun in an elliptical orbit at an average speed of 29,765 km per second. The closest to the Sun point of the orbit of the Earth is called perihelion, the Earth passes it in early January, it is more than 147 000 000 kilometers. Furthest point, aphelion, the Earth is held in early July, appearing at a distance of more than 152 million kilometers from the Sun.
