If the light just reached us, and the 'debris' travelled at 10% (or 1/10) the speed of light, the debris would take 10 times as long and thus 120 million years to reach us. So it seems we have around 108 million years to wait for the debris.

The light took 12 million years already and has just hit us.
If the debris travelled at 10% of the speed of light, the answer would be something along the lines of 10.8 million years.
I just don't know how fast it travels..

I hadn't thought of that, I just assumed it would explode 360 degrees and at least something would come our way (eventually) but you make a good point.
I'm still interested in the estimated speed if you find anything!

12 million years have already passed.
So another 10.8 million years from now if 10% is correct...
More like 108 million years if it travels at 10% the speed of light and it took 12 million for the light to reach us,
