Q1
I said that, because of the finite velocity of light, seeing far away is seeing in the past. Does this mean that, at
a given moment of observation (a single correct answer):

we see the full history of each individual star

we see each individual star at a particular moment, which is all the more ancient that the star is distant

we see each individual star at the precise moment that it emitted its first light.
