## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi guys,

in GR a free-falling observer will measure the local speed of light as c, like in SR.

My question is will an accelerated (non-inertial) observer locally measure a greater speed than c, or will he also measure the local speed of light as c. For instance, if there is an object that is at rest wrt to Earth, will the speed of light locally increase in that frame, since the object undergoes upward acceleration?

Thanks in advance.
