Mars Orbit Duration Statistics

The average duration of Mars orbit is approximately 687 Earth days.

Statistic 1

"The orbit of Mars around the Sun takes 687 Earth days."

Sources Icon

Statistic 2

"In Mars' orbit duration, this planet has an average speed of 24 kilometers per second."

Sources Icon

Statistic 3

"Mars' orbit is more elliptical than Earth's, causing temperature and atmospheric variations."

Sources Icon

Statistic 4

"A Mars year equals 1.8809 Earth years, due to the length of its orbit duration."

Sources Icon

Statistic 5

"Mars has an orbital inclination of 1.85 degrees relative to the ecliptic."

Sources Icon

Statistic 6

"The eccentricity of Mars' orbit around the sun is about 0.093."

Sources Icon

Statistic 7

"Because of its elongated orbit, Mars has a greater distance variation from the Sun compared to Earth."

Sources Icon

Statistic 8

"Mars' perihelion (closest approach to the sun) is about 207 million kilometers."

Sources Icon

Statistic 9

"Its aphelion (furthest distance from the sun) is about 249 million kilometers."

Sources Icon

Statistic 10

"Despite Mars' longer year, its day (the time it takes the planet to rotate or spin once) is very similar to Earth's - only about 40 minutes longer."

Sources Icon

Statistic 11

"Mars orbits farther from the sun than Earth does, so the sunlight reaching Mars is less than half as intense as it is on Earth."

Sources Icon

Statistic 12

"The shape of Mars' orbit is more elliptical, or oval-shaped than Earth's orbit, which affects the planet's distance from the sun and therefore affects its climate."

Sources Icon

Statistic 13

"The average distance from the Sun to Mars is about 228 million kilometers."

Sources Icon

Statistic 14

"Mars reaches perihelion once every Mars year, at the same point in its orbit."

Sources Icon

Statistic 15

"Mars’ rotational period is nearly identical to Earth’s, completing one rotation in just over 24 hours. This partly compensates for the longer duration of its year, with uneven day and night cycles throughout the year."

Sources Icon

Statistic 16

"Mars’ orbit around the Sun is more elliptical than Earth's, which means it travels more slowly when it is further from the Sun and faster when it is closer."

Sources Icon

Statistic 17

"Mars' axial tilt is about 25 degrees, similar to Earth's, which causes it to have similar seasonal changes during its longer year."

Sources Icon

Statistic 18

"Mars' maximum time of apparent retrograde motion, caused by Earth "overtaking" Mars in their respective orbits, averages 72 days."

Sources Icon

Statistic 19

"The radius of Mars' orbit around the sun is about 142 million miles (228 million kilometers)."
