Just had been 13 billion light years away? Well then we'd be in an area of space that was technically non existent. you'd be outside the big bang..lol. Unless I am misunderstanding you.. If you could exist "outside" the universe and were 13 billion light years away in nowhere land.. No you wouldn't.. because there would be no light and with no light, you get no pretty scenery.. 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..
