    Okay here is the question. How close are the nearest stars to the Sun as compared to the distance between the Sun and the Earth? Yes I do know the Sun is a star.

    The distance between sun and the nearest star (proxima centauri) is about 4.3 light years. It is approximately equal to 270000 times the distance between earth and sun.
