Once upon a time, time was different. Supernova explosions in the early universe appear to age more slowly than today's supernovae, as if time itself was running slower back then, according to a recent series of astronomical observations. This cosmic time warp is exactly what should be produced by the expansion of the universe, confirming conventional big bang theory.
In that mainstream picture, the fabric of space is expanding everywhere – an idea predicted by Einstein's general theory of relativity and tested by observation.
In the new research, an international team of astronomers have gone much further by monitoring 13 supernovae at a range of redshifts, and therefore a range of distances. The earliest and most distant of these slow-mo explosions appeared to age at only about 60% of the normal rate seen in supernovae today.The amount of time dilation increases with redshift, as expected if both are caused by the expansion of space

I think to them they would appear long as well.. If "they" are the same distance from us as we are from them etc... Or it could just be the distortion of the light particles traveling from so far away.
