<p>"We see this galaxy as it was, not as it is today. It is theoretically possible the galaxy no longer exists but the light will continue toward Earth through the vacuum of space until the last <em>vestiges</em> reach our eyes and it disappears." — Bob Allen, <em>The Daily Nonpareil</em> (Council Bluffs, Iowa), 26 Aug. 2021
