The SI base unit for time is the second.
1 second is equal to 1000000000 ns, or 3.1687536047488E-8 sidereal year.
Note that rounding errors may occur, so always check the results.

The SI prefix "nano" represents a factor of 10-9, or in exponential notation, 1E-9.
So 1 nanosecond = 10-9 arcseconds.
The definition of a second is as follows:
A second of arc or arcsecond is a unit of angular measurement which comprises one-sixtieth of an arcminute, or 1/3600 of a degree of arc or 1/1296000 (approximately 7.7×10-7) of a circle. It is the angular diameter of an object of 1 unit diameter at a distance of 360×60×60/(2pi) (approximately 206,265 units), such as (approximately) 1 cm at 2.1 km, or, directly from the definition, 1 astronomical unit at 1 parsec.
A sidereal year (from Latin sidus "asterism, star") is the time taken by the Earth to orbit the Sun once with respect to the fixed stars. Hence it is also the time taken for the Sun to return to the same position with respect to the fixed stars after apparently travelling once around the ecliptic. It equals 365.25636 SI days for the J2000.0 epoch.
