  Parsec - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
One parsec is defined to be the distance from the Earth to a star that has a parallax of 1 arcsecond.
The parsec follows naturally from this method, since the distance (in parsecs) is simply the reciprocal of the parallax angle (in arcseconds).
The Oort cloud is approximately 0.6 parsec in diameter.
