Only by researchers using giant telescopes.

It depends on the star and the distance it is from earth. I read of one recently which died 6000 light years ago and they just saw that recently. I would hazard a guess that the light from that star was 6000 years old.

If there's light, how can it be dead?

Do you see the problem?
No because it takes that long for the light to get her.

According to what I read yes. Maybe I am too trusting?

just reminded me of this


that's ex-president Zapatero googling "get out of the crisis" and hitting "I'm feeling lucky"

that must be the way scientists work too, no? sunny

Well if you have her recordings and dvds I guess she may still shine.
