AIUI, it's outside the lightcone of our part of the visible universe.
Not outside the part that we see being influenced.

I don't know that that makes sense given stationary lightcones, but the
flowing galaxies are moving away from us at high speed, which does
things to the axes of the lightcone, and the details exceeds my grasp of
special relativity.
