# How far is pluto from the Sun and other planets?

Jun 25, 2016

The average Sun-Pluto distance 5906.4 million km, nearly, is also the average distance of Pluto from every interior planet, with small errors due to small in-between inclinations of orbital planes.

#### Explanation:

Incredible but true!.

The average distance 5906.4 million km, nearly, of Pluto, from the

Sun, is also the average distance of Pluto from every interior

(solar orbiter) planet, with small errors in the lower significant digits

(lsd) that had gone to hiding, in the truncation and rounding to

5-sd approximation, 5906.4 million km.

These errors are due to small in-between inclinations of

orbital planes.

Elucidation:

Average distance of a planet from the Sun

= (perihelion + aphelion)/2, nearly

The average distance between any two planets (interior) P1 and

(exterior) P2

= ((P2 aphelion + P1 aphelion)+(P2 perihelion-P1 aphelion))/2

= (P2 aphelion+P2 perihelion)/2

= average distance of the outer orbiter P2, from the Sun .

Note that Pluto's orbit is almost outer to the 8th planet Neptune's..

The Neptune aphelion is nearly 4545.7 million km which is nearly

Pluto's perihelion 4436.8 million km.
