Light years

Light year (ly) is a unit of distance used in astronomy. One light year is equal to the distance traveled by light in a vacuum over one Julian year (365.25 days).


A micrometer (μm) is one millionth of a meter, or one thousandth of a millimeter. One micrometer is 10-6 m. Often you can also see the entry um, without using the Greek μ. The unit was formerly called the micron.

Formula (ly to μm)

[μm] = [ly] * 9.461E+21.
