The **Earth-Sun distance** is the distance from the Earth to the Sun.

The average Earth-Sun distance is equal to approximately 149,597,870.7 × 10^{3} meters (Earth-Sun distance ≈ 149,597,870.7 × 10^{3} m), the base unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). The average Earth-Sun distance is also equal to 149.60 × 10^{6} kilometers (km) (an SI unit of length), or approximately 92.956 × 10^{6} miles (mi) or 490.81 × 10^{9} feet (ft), which are US customary / Imperial units of length.

The average distance from the Earth to the Sun corresponds to one astronomical unit (Earth-Sun distance = 1 AU), a unit of distance used in astronomy. Common astronomical measurement units include the parsec (Earth-Sun distance ≈ 4.8481 × 10^{-6} pc) and the light-year (Earth-Sun distance ≈ 15.813 × 10^{-6} ly).

Plural: Earth-Sun distance
