Take the distances of Earth and Mars from the Sun in Earth-based Astronomical Units and you get nothing special:

Planet | Distance from the sun in km (000) |
Distance |

Earth | 149,600 | 1.00000 |

Mars | 227,940 | 1.52366 |

Let the distance of Mercury again be 1 and you get an entirely different perspective:

Planet | Distance from the Sun in km (000) |
Distance where Mercury equals 1 |

Earth | 149,600 | 2.5833 |

Earth^{¾} |
2.0377 | |

Mars | 227,940 | 3.9361 |

Solar Geometry, using a ratio of 3.936458, reveals this intriguing relationship between the Sun, Earth and Mars Jupiter:

Earth^{¾} * (½ ( √6 + √2 )) = Mars = 3.936458
