The Hubble and de Sitter redshift-distance laws are compared using large catalogs of galaxies and quasars. The de Sitter redshift-distance law is found to fit the modern observational data significantly better than does the Hubble law. Quasars can be understood as a manifestation of the asymptotic redshift of a quasi-static, de Sitter cosmology. This effect rapidly increases in importance near the cosmological event horizon.
