  1. Lecture 2 Astronomy Today

  2. 1 nanosecond = 1 ft (1/1,000,000,000 second) Light Speed = 299,792,458 meters/second Using Light to Measure Distance

  3. Earth to Moon = 1.28 light seconds Light Speed = 299,792,458 meters/second Using Light to Measure Distance

  4. Sun to Earth = 8.33 light minutes Light Speed = 299,792,458 meters/second Using Light to Measure Distance 1 AU (Astronomical Unit) =8.33 light minutes

  5. Sun to nearest star = 4.23 light years Light Speed = 299,792,458 meters/second Using Light to Measure Distance

  6. 1 AU 1 arc second = 1/3600 degree 1 pc Astronomers and Cosmologists use Parsecs A More Professional Unit of Distance 1 pc = 3.26 ly 1 parsec (pc)
