The orbital distance of the Earth (Perihelion = 0.9832687 and Aphelion = 1.01673 astronomical units) corresponds to the significant subnode [54; 3] of the electron-based F (10):
He said the dates for aphelion and perihelion can vary every year by a few days.

where D represents aphelion distance, Mp represents mass and a is a parameter whose values depend on c in the respective cases.

This law in its original form, applied to circular orbits, did not work for Mars, but left an 8' discrepancy: Mars was 8' closer to the earth a t the orbital points 90[degrees] from aphelion (point farthest from the sun) and from perihelion '(point closest to the sun).
Aphelion has set up a satellite office in the city of Valencia to coordinate Petro Pages ECP for Venezuelan suppliers, engineering, and operating companies including Vepica, Enelven, and Enelbar as well as American firms.
During that era, residual dust in the atmosphere kept average temperatures relatively warm, so water vapor never froze at low altitudes -- even when Mars was far from the sun, near aphelion. But when the atmosphere contains little or no dust near aphelion -- the more typical state of affairs, he asserts -- water vapor easily condenses into ice crystals, forming low-lying clouds in abundance.
The orbit of Charon about Pluto is so oriented that, at perihelion and aphelion, it alternately eclipses Pluto and is eclipsed by it for a period of some years.
