Distance of saturn from the sun?

Question asked by: cbmbice

Asked on: 13 Jan 2009

Saturn circles the Sun in an elliptical, or oval-shaped, orbit. This means that it comes closer to the Sun at some points than others. Saturn's average distance from the Sun is 890 million miles, as compared to Earth being "just" 93 million from the Sun. At its furthest point from the sun, known as aphelion, Saturn lies 934 million miles away; at perihelion, the shortest distance from the Sun, it is 837 million miles away.
