The SI base unit for **length** is the metre.

1 metre is equal to 3.8606955462749E-14 light-day, or 6.6845871226706E-12 astronomical unit.

Note that rounding errors may occur, so always check the results.

A light day (also written light-day) is a unit of length. It is defined as the distance light travels in an absolute vacuum in one day (of 86,400 seconds) or 25,902,068,371,200 metres (~26 Tm).

Note that this value is exact, since the metre is actually defined in terms of the speed of light. The light day isn't very frequently used at all since there are few astronomical objects or distances of that magnitude; the Oort cloud, for example, is thought to extend between 290 and 580 light-days out from the Sun.

The astronomical unit (AU or au or a.u. or sometimes ua) is a unit of length. It is approximately equal to the mean distance between the Earth and Sun. The currently accepted value of the AU is 149 597 870 691 ± 30 metres (about 150 million kilometres or 93 million miles).

The symbol "ua" is recommended by the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures, but in the United States and other anglophone countries the reverse usage is more common. The International Astronomical Union recommends "au" and international standard ISO 31-1 uses "AU".
