No capitals to Zon and Aarde. :)

Distance: 149.6 million km.

Sun light takes 8 minutes and 30 seconds to reach Earth. 149600000 kilometers/300000 km/s = 498,6 seconds = 8 minutes and 31 seconds.

Some people might say 8 minutes and 18.7 seconds… but all this is really off topic for a language course.

That's why I mentioned first the problem of the text, which is the capitals on the words. I didn't just answer the question and randomly mention that fact. That was just a funny bonus. :)
