As far as I understand it Hubble's velocity law says that the velocity v of a distant object with respect to us, at the present cosmological time, is given by(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

v = H_0 * r

where H_0 is the present Hubble constant and r is the distance to the object.

If a distant object is moving at velocity v with respect to us does that mean that proper time measured by an observer near that object is dilated by a gamma factor 1/sqrt(1-v^2/c^2) when measured in our time coordinates?
