Aphelion Day 2018: Earth Is Farthest from the Sun Today

About it reports "governmental courier". Today, July 6, our planet is in the most distant point in its orbit called the aphelion.

After all, we are just a few billion organisms on a small planet with a fragile ecosystem that depends nearly entirely on the sun.

However, this does not affect the heat or cold on Earth, say NASA experts. The elliptical, oval orbit puts some parts of the year closer to Sun than others. Earth's orbit is not a ideal circle so the distance from the sun varies through the year. Now the Earth is farther from the Sun than in winter our planet moves slower in its orbit than to move in six months. This means that the astronomical summer (the time from summer solstice to autumnal equinox) and continues in the Northern hemisphere longer than winter for five days.
