How would we see other galaxies if we were moving towards them at the speed of light

(ORDO NEWS) — In general, if a star, which is located at a distance of 1000 light years, died, then the inhabitants of the Earth would need 1000 years to find out about it.

But when would this happen if we were moving relative to it at the speed of light?

In fact, from Earth, we can see objects that no longer exist. This is due to the fact that light needs a certain time to reach the surface of our planet.

If we ourselves begin to move towards such an object, then we will still see its glow, but we will also see its death earlier: the whole point is to reduce the distance that the light must travel.

But there are other factors that are associated with speed close to or equal to the speed of light.

This is the Doppler effect: in other words, objects behind us will appear redder, while objects ahead will appear bluer.

And if the speed is high enough, then these objects will disappear altogether.

In general, at the speed of light, we could only see a small and bright spot in front of us, and darkness around it. It is impossible to distinguish any objects at such a speed.
