B. qrong tense.
C. "as is" is wrong.
D. changes the meaning. implying that they appear same as what they appeared when we saw them during formation of universe (where were we then? :) )

Shud be A.
Here, we cannot go for 'had been' because a past participle comes in to picture only with a past tense in the sentense. The sentense doesnot have a past tense but has a present tense. Hence, a simple past will do.
