It took the "light" from this event 13.14 billion years to reach us.....1.24311343 × 1026......or 1.24311343 × 1023 kilometers, or 7.72434874 × 1022 miles away. 77,243,487,400,000,000,000,000 miles away, and we see it here on Earth today as it was 13,140,000,000 years ago.

your use of significant figures leaves a lot to be desired!
