Just so you can get your head around space distances.
1 Astronomical unit (AU)= the distance between the Earth & the Sun(avg)= 93 million miles/150 million kilo.
1 Light year (LY)= the distance light can travel in 1 year in a vacuum= 5,880,000,000,000 trillion miles/9,460,000,000,000 trillion kilo
1 parsec=a parallax of 1 arc second=3.26 LY.
1 Kiloparsec=1,000 parsec's. (KPC)
1 Megparsec=1 million Parsec's. (MPC)

Mars=2.37AU
Jupiter=6.16AU
Saturn=10.80AU
Pluto=34.68AU
Alpha Centauri (our nearest Star)=4.36LY

These are all real measurements used by Astrophysicist's
Bit of useless information for the day!
