Hi,

Would the difference in the distance between the earth and the sun when the earth is in perihelion and when it is in aphelion be considered a parallax?

Thanks,

Well ... since perihelion and aphelion occur at opposite ends of the orbit... that would create the parallax...

So I think the answer to your question is ... er ... no.
