Earth on perihelion on January 3, closest to the Sun

0 11

New Delhi: A large solid yellow circle on the horizon with a thin green stripe around the outside.The gray outline shows how big the Sun looks at perihelion, the closest point to our Sun, on January 2, 2024. This is in contrast to the yellow ball, which shows the apparent shape of the Sun when the Earth is farthest from the Sun in July. This size difference is not large enough to be detected by the eye. And, of course, you should never look directly at the sun!

The Earth’s orbit around the Sun is not a circle. Instead, it is an ellipse, like a circle on which one has sat. So, it makes sense that the Earth holds the closest and farthest point from the Sun every year. For 2024, our closest point is 3 January.
