So, generalizing, the eye has a limit based on the angular velocity of the moving object.

[itex]\omega=v/R [/itex]

Since we would expect any alien planet to be a considerable distance R away from Earth, the speed at which it would have to travel to reach the limit would be orders of magnitude greater than the speed of light.
