# How far is Saturn from Earth?

The Earth-Sun distance is 1 AU. The average Saturn-Sun distance is 9.36 AU. The least distance might occur when Earth is in-between Sun and Saturn ( Sun - Earth - Saturn conjunction). The maximum might be when Sun is in-between Earth and Saturn (Earth - Sun - Saturn opposition). Simple questions like this help elucidate incredible information like "the mean distance of $a n y$ inner planet from an outer planet is nearly the distance of the outer planet from the Sun".
