Throughout many, (45 or so), years of passive absorption of astronomical learnedness from the ruminaries, -er-correction, -luminaries in the field, I am baffled by what I believe is a serious omission.
Why have I seen no mention of the increasing localization of "the observable universe" when looking at those 12-Billion-year-old-targets?
Seems to me that as we keep finding the newest "older than thine's" target, they should occupy a steadily decreasing angle of conical view that should obviously narrow to a point if someone should observe the very first star! Should be somewhere toward what we consider to be the center of the universe.
But then, to question again, has no sharpie considered that there could be an angular component to the origin of the (latest) "Big Bang", relative to us? Or the us we think we are?
Remember me, I would be interested in your feedback!........Bruce
