Recent Examples of redshift from the Web
Astronomers first studied faraway star surfaces by looking at the redshift or blueshift of light coming from the stars, a technique called Doppler imaging that reveals movement on the stars' surfaces.
But the story of dark energy doesn't get told by neighborhood redshifts.
The former measures X-rays, the latter specializes in detecting redshift, the stretching of light that is detected as something travels through space.
So a single supernova redshift measurement gives us the total amount of universal stretch in the intervening billions of years between us and the explosion.
