1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data You are flying your personal rocketcraft at 0.9c from Star A toward Star B. The distance between the stars, in the stars' reference frame, is 1.0 ly. Both stars happen to explode simultaneously in your reference frame at the instant you are exactly halfway between them. The question asked of the aforementioned scenario is "Do you see the flashes simultaneously?" 2. Relevant equations Conceptual question, no equations needed. 3. The attempt at a solution I answered the question with a no, my reasons were, if the rocket is at midway in his frame of reference when both stars explode, (the light from star B would reach the rocket first as it is traveling towards star B, i.e at .9c the distance of 1ly would be reduced to .44ly the midway of which would be .22ly) however it turns out the answer is yes. My relativity lecturer had a same view (on a similar question, he stated that the flashes would be observed at same time). Could someone explain explain why my answer was wrong?
