Our Sun, the powerhouse of the solar system and life-giving orb in our sky is approximately 93 million miles away and it takes 8.3 minutes to receive its energy and warmth.

Fun Fact: This is easily calculated by dividing 93,000,000 miles by 186,000mps (speed of light in miles per second) = 500 seconds.
