Q:

How many days does it take Pluto to orbit the sun?

A:

Pluto orbits the sun in a little over 90,553 Earth days, which is almost 248 Earth years. One day on Pluto is approximately equal to six and a half days on Earth, so a year on Pluto contains around 14,164 Plutonian days, also referred to as solar days.

Pluto is located about 3.67 billion miles from the sun, making it over 39 times more distant from the sun than Earth. Because Pluto follows an elliptical orbit, its distance from the sun varies between 2.76 billion miles to 4.59 billion miles. When Pluto and Earth are at their closest points along their orbit, they are 2.66 billion miles apart.
