the distance light travels in one month
I detected…vast regions of high resistance ether floating about, in many places in the universe; three of which lie within a hundred light years of our sun, and three of which lie within a single light month; dangerously close.
Lazarus, somewhat mollified, told her. The type-G, or Sun type, star toward which they had bent their course was now less than a light-year away—a little more than seven light-months, to be more nearly precise.
Ships that were supposed to be light-months away carrying on the carefully planned search for General Carr’s hideout were fluttering down out of the sky like senile penguins, disabled by blown jets, jammed computers, and all the other natural ills that worn out and poorly serviced equipment is heir to.
In the course of that period, we covered not quite one-and-a-half light-months.
I haven’t heard from the Lone Ranger yet…. Probably tangling with the Dents a light-month away.
The voice sprang from a tiny, almost unnoticed mass barely one light month away.
They were six light-months from the Olyix signal station—a modest L-class star with an airless, rocky planet orbiting two AUs out, and a Neptune-sized ice giant huddled away in the cold thirty-two AUs distant.
