You wouldn't even know it happened til billions of years later.
The only way you could see it would be about 13 billion years later, which is how long it would take for the light to reach you 13 billion years away from the epicenter.. lol..
To my understanding anyway..
there is no center, imagine a two-dimensional universe being the surface of a balloon. you can not travel away from the surface because you can only move in 2 dimensions. the color of the balloon is initially strong but the more it gets inflated the dimmer the color will be (= temperature in the universe). it doesn't matter where you are on the balloon, you can only observe everything in a circle with radius as far as light would have travelled since you have been put on the balloon. that's your observable universe.
