1.2-2.2 #AU# from Earth to the Asteroid belt


The asteroid belt is located between Mars and Jupiter and is quite wide. Objects are separated by great distances in the asteroid belt (#<# hundreds of thousands of km) so it is difficult to give just one distance.

#AU# = astronomical unit (the distance between the Earth and the Sun)
