Are colours arbitrary or as "perceived" by the telescope? If in any way they are relatively objective, would the blue indicate moving away from us and the red vice versa?

The pictures from space just keep getting better and better. It is wonderful to watch the N. G. Video of pictures showing blast off from earth and traveling billions of light years to the edge of the universe. We, can actually witness time travel that is real, not animation. Everyone on earth needs to go outside at night, look up and experience that there is something very big in the sky that we are truly seeing the creation and demolition of stars and planets. We owe all of this to our exploration of space via telescopes which allow us to peer billions of light years into the past, closer to the beginning of time as we know it.
