This year, perihelion is January 3rd (today), when the earth is as close to the sun as it will ever be. That would be 91,407,361 miles. Aphelion will be on July 4, 2011.
The life and times of a real, down to earth, nice guy. A relocated New Englander formerly living somewhere north of Boston, but now soaking up the bright sun of southwestern central Florida (aka The Gulf Coast). Welcome to my blog world. Please leave it as clean as it was before you came. Thanks for visiting, BTW please leave a relevant comment so I know you were here. No blog spam, please.
