“…The star nearest our solar system is Proxima Centauri. It is 4.2 light-years away, which means that its light takes 4.2 years to get here. That is 6,700 times farther than Pluto. Another huge jump in scale — much larger, for example, than the 200x jump from the width of a city to the width of the United States. You can pretty easily wait the 5.5 hours it takes for light to go from the Sun to Pluto, but waiting the 4.2 years it takes for light to get here from Proxima requires a good deal more patience. Even the very nearest star is incredibly far away…“ ..and so on
