"The way it's done is to pick a star and stare at it. Hold up your thumb and index finger in a "pincher" shape about 6 inches from your eye. Open and close pincher until all you can see it the light in the sky. Now, measure the exact distance of your pincher opening with a Stanley tape measure and multiply by any arbitrary big number. Now, divide in half and call it light years. You'll be about as close as the scientists best guess."
