Do we ever get closer to the sun?

    Yes, we are closest to the sun during a time known as Perihelion, in early January, which is summer in the southern hemisphere.  The time that Earth is furthest from the sun, Aphelion, is in early July.  Also, the Earth moves around the Sun in an elliptical orbit, not a perfect circle, so that at each point in the orbit, we are getting either closer or further away from the Sun.
