Voyager 2 Distance from Earth
The distance of Voyager 2 from Earth is currently 19,912,459,610 kilometers, equivalent to 133.106571 Astronomical Units. Light takes 18 hours, 27 minutes and 0.8157 seconds to travel from Voyager 2 and arrive to us.
The following chart shows the distance of Voyager 2 from Earth as a function of time. In the chart the distance data is measured in Astronomical Units and sampled with an interval of 1 day.
The value of the reported distance might be somewhat inaccurate around the times of closest approach for objects passing extremely close to Earth. The value of the distance of Voyager 2 from Earth is also available as a real time updated value in the Live Position and Data Tracker.
Closest Approach of Voyager 2 to Earth
Between 1 January 2013 and 30 December 2099, the closest approach of Voyager 2 to Earth happens on Sun Jun 2 2013 at a distance of 101.162452 Astronomical Units, or 15,133,687,450 kilometers:
NOTE: values for the closest approach are computed with a sampling interval of 1 day.
Visualization of Voyager 2 Orbit
This 3d orbit diagram is a feature of our 3D Solar System Simulator and shows the orbit of Voyager 2 with respect of the Sun and the orbits of the major planets. The position of Voyager 2 and the planets along their orbits in this diagram accurately represents the current configuration of the objects in the Solar System. This is an experimental feature and it requires a WebGL enabled browser. Please provide us feedback!
