Looking at this page:

it's also been proposed that the reflectors left by Apollo astronauts
on the Moon could allow the space between it and the Earth to be used
as a laser-delay storage system

So I can do you a three second delay, using a high powered laser, a
telescope and a photodiode.
But you will have to tell your customers it will only work once in a full moon.
