How far away is the earth from the sun?

The sun is the reason life exists on this planet, and the Earth is in the perfect place where it’s not too hot and not too cold, called the Goldilocks zone. So, how far away is this?

The Earth is approximately 92,960,000 miles away. That means it will take 8 minutes for sunlight to reach us, even though light travels… well, that’s for another post.
