It is defined as the distance covered by light (traveling at the speed of light, c = 3 × m/sec) in the course of one year (1 year = × sec).

Astronomy is designed to meet the scope and sequence requirements of one- or two-semester introductory astronomy courses. The book begins with relevant scientific fundamentals and progresses through an exploration of the solar system, stars, galaxies and cosmology.

The Astronomy textbook builds student understanding through the use of relevant analogies, clear and non-technical. This book is an introduction to Astronomy. While providing education, the book is meant to spark passion for the science and the space industry by highlighting discoveries and videos, books, lectures, web sites, articles, conventions, workshops, magazines, and college.
