In special relativity a sphere in the rest frame for some observer looks like an ellipsoid for an observer with a relative velocity.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can we use the same reasoning for the Schwarzschild spacetime? Namely that a spherically symmetric spacetime produced by a spherical mass look ellipsoidal for an observer with a relative velocity compared to that body?
