The average distance to Earth and Sun is about 9.6 AU, the distance to Earth at any time is roughly between 8 and 11 AU.


A moon orbits relatively close to its parent planet, so Titan is as far from Earth as Saturn itself. The average distance from Saturn to Earth is nearly the same as the average distance from Saturn to the Sun, about 9.6 AU. The minimum distsnce to Earth is as 8 AU when Saturn is at its closest to the Sun and the Earth is directly between them. The maximum is about 11 AU when Saturn is farthest from the Sun and Earth is on the opposite side of the Sun.
