For example, a photon takes eight minutes to reach us from the Sun, four years to reach a nearby star (Proxima Centauri), and more than 200,000 years to cross our galaxy from side to side. So when you look at the sun, you see it as it was eight minutes ago; Proxima Centauri, Was four years ago.

Since light from our nearby Andromeda galaxy took 2.5 million years to reach us, we see it as it was 2.5 million years ago.
