A Megaparsec is a million parsecs (mega- is a prefix meaning million) there are about 3.3 light-years to a parsec, a megaparsec is rather a long way. The standard abbreviation is Mpc. When discussing distances like the size of a galaxy cluster, or a supercluster, or a void, the megaparsec is a handy unit.[1]
