What the Observer saw. Up front I admit I have only a limited understanding of Relativity and in particular what it means to have light travel at (c + v). In order to understand this better let's consider the classical train/platform thought experiment with lightning bolts at each end of the train. Because light travels at c in both frames then the time to reach the middle in each case is simply c/(l/2) where l is the length of the train. Both experience this in their own frame. Now let's consider a train with a window in the middle where the passenger sits, so the station master can't
