c = 1618051 stadiums/second
The golden mean popped up.
phi1 = 1.618033989
This led me to define the photon stadium (S) as follows
S = phi2 x c mircoseconds = 0.618033989 x 299792458 m/sec x (sec x 10^-6) = 185.2819 meters
A photon stadium is the golden mean of the length light travels in a vacuum in a millionth of a second of time.
The golden mean of 1 is phi2:
phi2 = 1/phi1 = [root(5)-1]/2 = 0.618033989
If we divide by 600 we get the photon foot (f):
f = S/600 = 0.3088032 meters
If we used the volumetric mean radius of the Earth then 1 arc second of Earth's perimeter leads to a foot of 0.308875 meters. The Earth Meridian yields a value of about 0.3087 meters.
