In another topic the oldest black hole has been found. "Sitting at the heart of a distant galaxy, the black hole appears to be about 12.7 billion years old, which means it formed just one billion years after the universe began and is one of the oldest supermassive black holes ever known." I am wondering how astronomers see and claimed that this black hole formed a billion years after the universe. Say that the universe has a center where it all began. At the big bang everything started accelerating in a spherical shape outwards. If we are somewhere on the side of the sphere then how could something that happened 12.7 billion years ago be seen? And since we are not going faster then the speed of light, the light from the black hole should already be past us. It is kind of hard to explain and if you have any questions just ask.
