Well Sarge.. that's where things get interesting.. since that star is 950 light years away... the light actually takes 950 years to get here....so when we view it in a telescope, we see what it looked like 950 years ago. Even more interesting, I read an article about the star Betelgeuse which is expected to go supernova soon, if it hasn't already. It's 520 light years away. They say that when the light does reach us from the supernova explosion, that it will light up the dark side of the earth and appear as a second sun for approximately two weeks. Would be a really cool thing to see and experience, but since predicting it's death isn't an exact science, I'm not holding my breath waiting for it to happen.
