Imagine the following scenario: Two spacecraft travel towards each other. Each travels at 0.6C relative to their point of origin (the points of origin being stationary relative to each other). Now as they both approach each other at 0.6, observers at the points of origin will be able to observe the distance between the two craft closing at a rate of 1.2C, breaking the rule of not traveling at a speed greater than 1C.

What am I missing here?

Thanks.
