## Main Question or Discussion Point

Basically I want to understand what Rindler observer will see if he looks out the window in direction that is perpendicular to direction of acceleration.

As I understand there are at least three effects (as analyzed from perspective of Minkowski observer):

1) accelerated motion relative to inertial objects;

2) increasing aberration that creates apparent motion of inertial objects in direction of acceleration;

3) increasing length contraction of Rindler observer that creates apparent motion of inertial objects toward plane that is perpendicular to direction of motion and goes trough Rindler observer.

For the first effect distance to object changes speed of observed angular motion (acceleration) but for other two effects distance to the object does not affect angular motion (acceleration) of object.

Any thoughts? Does it seems right so far?
