4.3 years,

The sun is approx. 93 million miles from earth divide that by the speed of light-approx. 186,000 miles per second = 500 min. divide by 60 min.= 8.33 min.

which make the above answer of 4.3 years incorrect

Actually my scirnce teachers says it only takes 8 minutes for the suns light ot reach earth.
