Why do we know the speed of the Earth?

German-born astronomer and mathematician Johannes kepler dedicated his life to carrying out studies to understand the movement of the planets around the Sun. Thanks to these investigations we can predict the speed at which the Earth is moving. Kepler deduced that the closer the Earth to the Sun, the faster it will move.

Our planet has an elliptical motion of 930 million kilometers and reaches an average speed of 107,280 kilometers per hour, thus calculating the 365 days of the year and six hours to complete the orbit. These overtime hours are the reason why every four years we have to add one day in February, which is called a leap year.

What happens when the Earth is away from the Sun?

On the contrary of perihelion, the aphelion is the farthest point from Sun to which the Earth during the journey of its orbit (5 million kilometers). Following the laws of KeplerThis means that the Earth will reach its minimum speed on July 4 of this year, reducing speed to 103,536 kilometers per hour, more than 7,000 kilometers apart.
