On Tuesday, Jan. 4 at 07:00 GMT or 2 a.m. EST, the Earth will reach perihelion, its minimum distance from the sun for the year.

At that time Earth will sit 91.407 million miles (147.105 million km) from our star — or 1.66% closer than our mean distance of 1.0 Astronomical Units.

As winter-chilled Northern Hemisphere dwellers will attest, daily temperatures on Earth are not controlled by our proximity to the sun, but by the number of hours of daylight we experience.
