Infinite distances in millions of light-years
and time-scale of billions of years is
way beyond our capacity to comprehend.

At a Sub-atomic level the smallness of
particles and the distances is also
absolutely mind-boggling to think about.

The one who created all these things
in the Universe had another trick
up his sleeve – Creation of Life.

We need no one to tell us about
the greatness of this Creator and
need no one to speak on his behalf.

All we need to do is to look around
and feel the miracles in the smallest
particle to biggest Galaxy of Stars.

All we need is to look at ourselves
and the life around us in the form
of all the creatures great and small,
grass, plants, tallest-oldest trees
and feel Greatness of the CREATOR,

A light-year (symbol: ly), sometimes written light year or lightyear is an astronomical unit of length (not time) equal to just under 9.5 trillion kilometers (or about 6 trillion miles). As defined by the International Astronomical Union (IAU), a light-year is the distance that light travels in vacuum in one Julian year.

The light-year is most often used when expressing distances to stars and other distances on a galactic scale, especially in non-specialist and popular science publications. The unit usually used in professional astrometry is the parsec (symbol: pc, approximately 3.26 light-years; the distance at which one astronomical unit subtends an angle of one second of arc).
