Miles

Miles are a unit of length in the imperial and U.S. customary systems, defined as 5,280 feet or 1,760 yards. Miles are commonly used in the United States and some other countries for measuring longer distances, such as road travel or geographical features. The mile has historical origins in ancient Roman measurements.

Lightyears

A light-year is a unit of astronomical distance, and it represents the distance that light travels in one year through the vacuum of space. Light travels at a speed of approximately 186,282 miles per second (299,792 kilometers per second) in a vacuum. The light-year is commonly used in astronomy to measure distances on a cosmic scale because of the vast distances involved in space. For example, the distance to nearby stars, galaxies, and other celestial objects is often expressed in terms of light-years due to the impracticality of using more familiar units like kilometers or miles for such immense distances.
