Conversion from Light year (ly) to Light minute (lm) and vice versa

Updated on by Stefan Banse

Here you can convert the Unit of length Light year into the unit Light minute and vice versa you can convert Light minute into Light year. By clicking the "Swap units" icon, you will always obtain the desired conversion in the calculation result, i.e., ly to lm or lm to ly. With the following calculator you can also calculate any other Unit of length.

Info about "Light year"

A light-year refers to the distance of light (in a vacuum) within one year. There are different definitions for a year (Gregorian year, tropical year, Julian year etc.), therefore the Julian year (365.25 days) was used as a definition for the light year. A light-year is converted to 9,460,730,472,580.8 km, around 9.5 trillion km. For example, the Milky Way is 100,000 light-years long because distance is difficult to measure in kilometers.

Info about "Light minute"

One light minute is defined as the light (in a vacuum) travelled in one minute. One minute of light is converted to 17,987,547.48 km, around 18,000,000 km. One light minute is equivalent to 60 light seconds. For example, the average distance between the sun and the earth is about 8.3 light minutes. This means, during a sunset you can still see the sunlight at the horizon, even though it has already disappeared from the horizon for more than eight minutes.
