hello, there

I Am Lightyear began as a rebirth and passion project. It remains as it is, the future is unknown, really. Many other passion projects have come to light since, and while I Am Lightyear remains vocal, it is quietly so.

A light-year (abbreviation: ly), sometimes written light year, is a unit of length used informally to express astronomical distances. It is approximately 9 trillion kilometers (or about 6 trillion miles). As defined by the International Astronomical Union (IAU), a light-year is the distance that light travels in vacuum in one Julian year. Because it includes the word year, the term light-year is sometimes misinterpreted as a unit of time.

The light-year is most often used when expressing distances to stars and other distances on a galactic scale, especially in non-specialist and popular science publications.
