Twinkling moments

Barry Yeoman's fine article on neo-creationism led me to re-read Genesis. If I understand Mr. Ham correctly, stars were created along with the sun, several "days" after the beginning. Without following Clarence Darrow's famous question about how the days were determined before there was a sun, I noticed that if Mr. Ham were correct, only stars less than about 6,000 light years from earth would be visible.
