Coincidence in Solar system

Solar photons or light from the Sun to the Earth needs exactly 500 seconds to reach the Earth. Does someone knows more coincidences in the solar system?

The Sun have an average distance to the Earth of  149597870700 metres. This is called an astronomical unit. (AU)

The AU is also defined as 499,002 light seconds.

As 499,002 isn’t exactly 500, the “coincidence” in question doesn’t really exist in the real World. Sorry but that’s how it is.
