    Would that be because of the distance in light years?
    Maybe the light just wouldn't hit us for a million years?
    Or is it because everything would just not be affected in a million years? (human time)

    I believe there is already a small dwarf galaxy colliding with ours - we don't notice it because it's on the other side of the galaxy to us.
    We also have, of course, the two satellite dwarf galaxies (Magellanic clouds) whizzing around us!
