when we say the blackhole explosion occurs some 40,000 light years away, does it mean that the explosion we are seeing now actually happened 40,000 years ago ???

To me, i understand that whatever our telescopes receive is the light which arrives into our telescopes at that point of time. Am i wrong ??

I will really appreciate if somebody could just tell me more about astronomy. Write to me at " etsline@cyberway.com.sg " Thanks a lot !
