A light-year is measured by the distance light travels in a vacuum in one year, which is (only) about 6 trillion miles. Light travels at about 186,000 miles per second. The light-year is used to measure distances between planets and galaxies. The Andromeda Galaxy, one of our closest, is about 2.2 million light years away.
When we look through a telescope at the Andromeda, we are seeing it as it was over 2 million years ago

Walk with the person who's searching for truth........ run from the person who says they've found it !
