Q:

How far is Jupiter from the Earth?

A:

Jupiter and the Earth are both orbiting the sun at different rates, meaning sometimes Jupiter is closer to the Earth than others. At their closest, they are about 629,000,000 km (391,000,000 miles) apart, but at their furthest, they are 928,000,000 km (577,000,000 miles) apart. That's very far in eather case! About 4 to 6 times the distance from the Earth to the Sun.
