Hmm. At this point, we couldHmm. At this point, we could not find the article that you mention. The closest would be "How Old Is the Starlight You'll See Tonight?" by Frederick F. Bird on pages 40-41 in The 1983 Old Farmer's Almanac. It gives a list of some of the brighter stars that we can see, and what happened on Earth when the light left that star to reach us in 1983 (date of article). It also gives a simple sketch of a star map with these major stars listed. If we come across an article that is closer to what you have described, we'll post the title/author/publication year here. Thank you for your interest in The Old Farmer's Almanac!
