One parsec is approximately 3.26 light-years. The nearest known star to the Earth, other than the Sun, Proxima Centauri, is 1.29 parsecs (4.21 light-years) away. The distance to the open cluster Pleiades is between 120 and 140 parsecs (between 391 and 456 light-years).

• p = parallax angle of that star, in arcseconds • This simple relationship between parallax and distance reveals that the closest stars have the greatest parallax. • Astronomers often describe distances in parsecs rather than light-years because they use the observed parallax to measure distance.

Parallax is a displacement or difference in the apparent position of an object viewed along two different lines of sight, and is measured by the angle or semi-angle of inclination between those two lines. Distance measurement by parallax is a special case of the principle of triangulation, which states that one can solve for all the sides and angles in a network of triangles if, in addition to ...
