The parsec (symbol pc) is a unit of length used in astronomy. It stands for "parallax of one arc second", and is approximately 19,131,554,073,600 (19 trillion) miles.

## ››Definition: Light-year

A light year, abbreviated ly, is the distance light travels in one year: roughly 9.46 × 1012 kilometres (9.46 petametres, or about 5.88 × 1012 (nearly six trillion) miles). More specifically, a light year is defined as the distance that a photon would travel, in free space and infinitely far away from any gravitational or magnetic fields, in one Julian year (365.25 days of 86400 seconds each).
