I am confused at the "time" of the event. The article states it started 1,000,000 years ago and is 1.4billion light years away. Wouldn't the evidence it is occuring have taken at least 1.4 billion years to get to us?

The million year number is a guess by scientists, based from what they know about such things. It says so in the article. <br /><br />Perhaps someone who knows more about it can elaborate what previous information and theories they used in order to arrive at this guess of 1 000 000 years. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p> </p><p> </p><p><span style="color:#ff9900" class="Apple-style-span">-pyoko</span> <span style="color:#333333" class="Apple-style-span">the</span> <span style="color:#339966" class="Apple-style-span">duck </span></p><p><span style="color:#339966" class="Apple-style-span"><span style="color:#808080;font-style:italic" class="Apple-style-span">It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.</span></span></p> </div>

There is a thread in Space Science and Astronomy discussing the story in more detail. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#000080"><em><font color="#000000">But the Krell forgot one thing John.
