Doesn’t the Earth fluctuate it’s distance?
Edit: After deep study (read: 1 quick Google search), the answer is yes. By about 5 Million km throughout the year.
@XiozTaschez, Yeah, things rotate in ovals, not perfect circles.
@Weird Porn Stash, things rotate on an axis, things revolve in ellipses.
@Weird Porn Stash, Exactly, elliptical orbital path because the sun actually “wobbles”, throwing off it’s center of mass.
@XiozTaschez, Yes, but I feel like if we were closer, on average, it would have a devastating impact on the world
@A Deformed Penis, perhaps, but earth is not on the edge of the Goldilocks Zone, so the change in the earths distance by a few feet (if done suddenly) would have dramatic immediate effects but im not sure if would change things greatly in the grand scheme of things
@XiozTaschez, does it mean like if our orbit was out by 10 feet we would fall into the sun or something?
@XiozTaschez, but 5,000,010 and we’d all be toast.
@gregjabb, the axis would be the sun.
@Weird Porn Stash, nerd burn
@big freedom, Gregjabb is correct, it might feel like hair splitting but it’s a necessary distinction
That's just cuz the sun doesn't have to reach as far to slap those chickens
