The Earth's Distance From the Sun

Although we may have learned at school that the earth is 93 million miles from the sun, the earth's distance from the sun varies according to the time of year, that is, where the earth is at in its orbit around the sun. The orbit is not a perfect circle, but rather an oval making the distance variable.
