The Earth's aphelion - the farthest its present orbit takes it from the Sun - is 152,097,701 kilometres. The other point, the perihelion - the nearest it gets to the Sun …on its present orbit - is 147,098,074 kilometres
JUNE, because at that time it is summer and it has the most time of daylight. which makes it the farthest.
The condition is called apehelion. This is during winter solstice when the areas inside the arctic circle experiences 24 hours of darkness and the antarctic circle experie…nces 24 hours of daylight. The date is 21st decemebr.
July 4. When it is summer in the northern hemisphere
The earth is farthest from the sun in early July. This may be surprising to northerners. It is perfectly sensible to our friends in the southern hemisphere.
It is called aphelion, and it happens during summer in the northern hemisphere. It happens on or near July 4. It is close to, but not coincident with the summer solstice.
That is either called aphelion, or the more generic term (useful for ANY type of orbit, not just this particular case) apapsis is used.
The Earth is farthest away from the sun actually in July and closest in January. A+: Aphelion :)
The point in the Earth's orbit when it is farthest from the Sun is called aphelion, and it generally occurs on July 4 each year, plus or minus a day or two.
Aphelion (earth's greatest distance from the sun) occurs in July. This year it is July 4th. Next year (2010) it will be July 6th.
Roughly around 152,000,000 km in July (152 million kilometers). Closest is 147,000,000km in January... :)

The point is called aphelion and occured on July 6th of 2010.
No, the sun is actually the closest star to Earth. It is the only star in our solar system as well. All the other stars are from 4.2 light years away to about 100,000 light ye…ars.
