A parsec is a unit of distance measurement, equal to 3.262 light-years (31 trillion kilometres or 19.2 trillion miles). One parsec is the distance at which one astronomical unit subtends an angle of one arc-second. The parsec measurement was often used to measure stellar cartography by starship navigators.
