I'll take Astronomy for $800, Alex

I got the final question right on Jeopardy! last night. Me and one of the contestants correctly deduced that the two word, colorfully named phenomenon used to describe the movement of galaxies toward the earth is the blue shift. The other two contestants bit on the obvious and went with the red shift, which describes the movement of galaxies away from the earth. James would be so proud of me.
