What is the distance from Earth to Sun?

I am not sure how to derive the distance because the earth is not a perfect globe.

  1. The distance from the earth to the sun isn’t always the same because the earth doesn’t travel in a circle. It is between 91.5 and 94.5 million miles.

  2. The distance from Earth to the sun is called an astronomical unit, or AU, which is used to measure distances throughout the solar system. Earth orbits the Sun at an average distance of 149.60 million km (92.96 million mi). https://web.archive.org/web/20150703111716/http://solarsystem.nasa.gov/planetRead more
