# Meters to light years converter

Meters to light years converter returns exact value for meters [m] into light years [ly]. The calculator returns 0.000000000000000106 ly in 1 m or in the shortened form 1.06E-16 in 1 m. See also light years into meters calculator.

## Meter

Meter (abbreviated m) – is the basic unit of length in systems such as: SI, MKS, or MTS. The construction of the metro should be connected with the date of March 26, 1791. The length of a meter as the path that light travels in a vacuum during 1/299792458 seconds was established only at the end of the 20th century. From 1795 to 1983, the measure of the meter varied depending on how it was measured.

## Light year

Light year (abbreviated ly) – this unit is used primarily in astronomy. Its length is simply equivalent to the distance light travelled in a vacuum in 1 year. To better visualize the value of this measure, an approximate value of 9.5 trillion kilometers can be given.
