I understand the light we see from a star(s) is from a long time ago due to the stars great distance away. By a long time ago I have read this can be hundreds or thousands of years ago. So then if each star light we see in the sky is from different time periods then where the star(s) really are at the moment we see them in fact be somewhere completely different. In other words in the stars real time it's postion is quite different from what we see here on earth. If that is true then where all the stars really are would present a very different picture. Am I correct ? (I've asked others but they don't know or just think it is a strange question...perhaps it is).
