A short question this time :(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is the gravitational length contraction an effect which acts parallel as well as perpendicular to the direction of the gravitational field ?

I suppose it is not occuring perpendicular to it, but I might be wrong and I didn't find a good reference on it.
