"someday we'll meet beyond the stars and it'll be away from here"

Every now and then I listen to that last voicemail  you left. I think you're one of the only people that can say, "Hey, pick up your phone,"  and still make me want to return your calls.  You always had that special something about you. I love you Deejay.

Given the vast distances in astronomy, even fast moving objects will not appear to change their appearance in a human lifetime.

"Given the vast distances in astronomy, even fast moving objects will not appear to change their appearance in a human lifetime. Typically. A recent spectacular exception to this, however, is the supersonic jet in the star forming Herbig Haro 47. HH 47 is so close -- and the jets are moving so fast -- that images from the Hubble Space Telescope from 1994 to 2008 have been combined into a time-lapse movie that actually shows a powerful jet expanding. Visible above, jets of plasma extending over 10,000 times the Earth-Sun distance shoot out from a forming star at speeds in excess of 150 kilometers per second. Studying how these jets evolve gives clues not only to how the star in HH 47 is forming, but how stars like our Sun formed billions of years ago. HH 47 is located about 1,500 light years away toward the constellation of Sails of a Ship (Vela). "
