BRIN speaks about the distance that the Sun is moving away from the Earth

KONTAN.CO.ID – Nation World News. Recently, the news of the event of the Sun moving further away from the Earth has become a topic of discussion.

This information comes after news that the Earth is spinning faster than it should, which has shortened the days.

Is it true that the Sun is moving far away from Earth?

Brin Explanation

Thomas Jamaluddin, an astronomer and astrophysicist at the National Research and Innovation Agency’s (BRIN) Center for Space Research, denied that the Sun was moving further away from Earth.

According to him, the distance between the Sun and the Earth is not getting farther. However, there are times when the distance between the Sun and the Earth becomes closer or vice versa.

“The distance between Earth and the Sun is not getting any further,” said Thomas, when contacted by Nation World News, Monday (8/8/2022).

Meanwhile, the distance between the Sun and the Earth is affected by the Earth’s orbit around the Sun.

“Mummy’s orbit around the Sun is elliptical. The closest is the distance, the farthest is the distance,” he said.

Earth’s closest distance to the Sun is 147 million kilometers (km). Earth’s farthest distance from the Sun is 152 million km.

The event that the Earth is at its farthest position from the Sun is called aphelion.

The indifference phenomenon where the point of Earth’s orbit is farthest from the Sun has no effect on Earth’s climate.

“Absolutely no effect. Information on social media about perihelion or aphelion is pretty much a hoax,” Thomas said.

Earlier, information about the phenomenon of apathy was often shared on social media. The information links the indifference phenomenon that causes the temperature on Earth to cool.

However, according to the statement by Thomas and the Meteorological, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG), this information is not accurate.

aphelion at a glance

Quoted from the almanac, deflation is the state when the Earth’s orbital point is farthest from the Sun. The point in the Earth’s orbit that is closest to the Sun is called perihelion. Both words come from the Ancient Greek words helios meaning “sun” and apo meaning “far,” and peri meaning “near.”

The difference between the two orbital point distances is due to the Earth’s orbit of the Sun having an elliptical or oval-shaped path.

The nostalgia event always occurs in early July. About two weeks after the June solstice, when the Earth is farthest from the Sun.
Whereas perihelion occurs in early January or about two weeks after the December solstice. At that time the Earth was closest to the Sun.

In 2022, depression begins on July 4 at 03:10 Eastern Time. Earth will be 94,509,598 miles away from the Sun.
Whereas perihelion occurs on January 4th at 01:52 Eastern Time where the Earth is 91.406,842 miles away from the Sun.
