← Cosmic distance record 'broken'

We see this cosmic wonder as it was 13.14 billion years ago. We can't see it as it is now; it is beyond the horizon.

It was then (redshift+1) times closer to us than it is now, because space is expanding. So it was not 7,243,487,400,000,000,000,000 miles away then and is not now.
