How many light years from Earth is the Sun?Hedger53 - 6 Answers
A light year is the distance light will travel in one year, which is about 5,869,713,600,000 miles or almost 6 trillion miles. The sun is so close, yet far enough away that it takes light about 8 minutes and 20 seconds to reach Earth. The distance from Earth to the sun would have to be multiplied by 64,000 to equal a light year. Even the ex-planet Pluto is close enough that it takes light about 5-1/2 hours to get there from the sun.
The earth is actually closest to the Sun in the northern hemisphere winter.
The sun, in light years, is only 0.00001585 light years away
The sun is 149598261 km from the earth. One light year is equal to 9.4605284 Ã— 10^12 km.
