Okay last one for today. promise. When we look back at distant galaxies, we are looking back into time. If the galaxy is 2 billion light years away, we are looking 2 billion years back in time. But hold on a second. 2 billion years ago it was at that point. But present day it's somewhere else. Most galaxies are spreading apart, but some are headed for collision. If another galaxy was coming closer to us (not headed directly towards), couldn't we point our telescopes to where it was 2 billion years ago and also to where it was 5 years ago and see it in both places? Why don't we see a blur of the path the galaxies have traveled? If we can look back into time, shouldn't we be able to see that galaxy at every point in time as long as it is within 13.7 billion light years? This raises another question. Assume the universe is a sphere (I really don't know if it is). If the radius is 13.7 billion light years (the age of the universe), then shouldn't we be able to see further than 13.7 billion light years, since we are not at the center? But how in could we see further than 13.7 billion years ago back into time? Thanks :D. Since this is all relative it won't really help anyone with anything. I'm just curious.
