Is it safe to say that when we look at anything through hubble that is 60,00 (or any given disttance)light years away that we are really not looking at what is going on now but instead what was going on a long time ago. Now I am 99.9% sure that that is right because it takes so long for light to reach us from so far away. What my question is is there any way to calculate what a nebula or supernovae are doing currently when we get this old image given what we know about them?
