1 Additional Answer
The distance between Saturn and Jupiter varies depending on what side of the sun they are at. So when Jupiter and Saturn happened to be lined up on the same side of the sun, the distance between them is minimized to 534 million km (332 million miles). When they both are at opposite sides of the sun, the distance is maximized to 2.326 billion km (1.445 billion miles).
