# How many light years away is Earth from the closest outer edge of the black hole at the center of the Milky Way?

How many light years is Earth away from the closest outer edge of the supermassive black hole in Sagittarius A* at the center of the Milky Way? I don't mean the distance to the center of the galaxy, but to the point in the black hole's circumference where it is closest to us.

I've looked at that link but I didn't find this info there; could you point me specifically to where on the page that can be found? –  seijitsu Aug 26 '14 at 8:48
Copy the link, do not just click on it: the * is not included in the link, and it send to a wrong page. –  Py-ser Aug 26 '14 at 9:01
