yes, there are three different things to consider:<quoted text>
Understood we are seeing 13 billion year old light.
But there is another factor it isn't the distance at the time the light was emitted.
MACS0647-JD is thought to be the farthest thing we have seen, we see it as it was 13.3 billion years ago. But it wasn't 13.3 billion ly away when it's light left it, it was closer. The light traveled father than the actual distance was between us when it left, and now it should be nearly 46 billion ly away.
1) how far apart that object was from us when it emitted the light.
2) how far apart that object is from us now.
3) how far the light traveled going from that object to get to us.
For this object, I would have to look up what the distance was in the past, but it was essentially the radius of the observable universe at that time. That would be far less than 13 billion light years.
The distance to that object now is about 45 billion light years.
And the distance light actually traveled is 13 billion light years.
