Did you know?

laadlucy:

That when you look up at the night sky, you’re literally looking into the past?

Because light has to travel from the star to our atmosphere, the star is in a completely different spot by time you see it.

It’s like seeing the dust figure of the Roadrunner in the old cartoons.  You see the figure, but the Roadrunner is actually miles down the road already.

So when you look at a star, remember, you’re looking at where it was days ago.

Truly amazing.
