The Earth enters aphelion and reaches its minimum speed

The Earth will move more slowly this Friday than during the rest of the year, as it will be at aphelion, or the furthest point in its orbit around the Sun.

According to Kepler’s second law, the Earth travels slower if it is farther from the Sun and faster if it is closer.

The orbit is not circular, so the distance between them is not always the same and, therefore, the speed of our planet is not identical either.

Once a year it is at perihelion (minimum distance), 147 million kilometers; on Friday it will be 152 million kilometers away.
