The sun is about 93 million miles away from Earth, and it's at about 3 million miles from the surface that temperatures would scorch up to above 248 degrees Fahrenheit. Relatively speaking, this is still pretty close.
Also asked, what is the closest anyone has gotten to the sun?
On October 29, 2018, at about 18:04 UTC, the spacecraft became the closest ever artificial object to the Sun. The previous record, 42.73 million kilometres (26.55×106 mi) from the Sun's surface, was set by the Helios 2 spacecraft in April 1976.
Similarly, what will happen if you get close to the sun?
Well first thing's first: You would disintegrate. At the temperature of the Sun, most of the molecules that make up our bodies could not even survive, that is why we would not only fry and die, we would really disintegrate (all the molecules breaking apart, leaving only loose atoms).
Could you stand on Sun?
You can't stand on the surface of the Sun even if you could protect yourself. The Sun is a huge ball of heated gas with no solid surface. The Sun's surface is always moving. Sometimes storms bigger than the size of Earth can send gas and energy flowing into space.
What if Earth was 10 feet closer to the sun?
Given the Earth's average absolute temperature is about 288 Kelvin, moving 10 feet closer to the Sun would raise the average temperature of the Earth by 3 billionths of a degree.
