Light always travels at a speed of 299,792,458 meters per second.

- The nearest star (other than the Sun) is 4.3 light years away.

- Our galaxy (the Milky Way) is about 100,000 light years in diameter.

eg. (understandable) i am 2 minutes away. the two stars are 3 light-years apart.

eg. (difficult to comprehend) my class starts at 2 kilometers. the shop opens at 5 miles.
