According to TASS with reference to the press service of the Moscow Planetarium, on January 4, 2023, our planet will be at a minimum distance from the Sun, and therefore the apparent diameter of the star will be the largest in the year.
As astronomers told the agency, visually the Sun will appear 3% larger than in July. The scientists recalled that it is possible to study the Sun with a telescope and other optical instruments only with the use of a special filter.
