"[..]Kepler's view is 105 square degrees and will be focused on one area all the time. It will orbit around our Sun, 950 miles away from Earth."

If the Sun is now 950 miles from Earth, I imagine that we can expect the weather to get a bit warmer, seeing as how the sun is beginning to enter Earth's atmosphere. Genius.

Yea, that statement in the article needs to be reworded. They're making it sound like the Sun is 950 miles away from the Earth instead of the established 1 astronomical unit measurement... — 21:21, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
