abstract = {The relativity of simultaneity says that an observer will conclude an event happened first if the light from that event reaches them first. For example, in Einstein?s thought experiment of the two observers, one standing on the platform, and one standing on a train moving train, Einstein says that if two lightning bolts struck the platform in at an equal distance for the observer on the platform, but not an equal distance for the observer on the train by the time for the light from the lightning bolt to reach him the observer standing on the moving train concludes the light from the lightning bolt that's farther away from him came after the one closest to him.
However, that is not the case because we do not conclude that the light from stars that are far away from us came after the stars that are closer to us because we account for the time it takes for the light to reach us. So we know that even though the light from stars that are billions of light-years away from us reaches after the light from stars that are a 10 light years away from us we know that the stars that are closest to us came after the stars that are farthest away from us, even though the light from the stars that are closest to us reached us first.
If the observer on the train accounts for the time it took for the light from the lightning bolts to reach him, he would not conclude that the lightning bolt that's farther away from him came after the lightning bolt that's closer to him. It?s the same idea as with accounting for the time it takes for light to reach us from the stars. In  Einstein?s thought experiment we do the same thing for the lightning bolts as we do for the stars (account for the time it takes for the light to reach us) only we?re doing it on a smaller scale (the lightning bolts are matter of feet away as opposed to the stars which are light-years away).}
