If I am moving through space at a velocity that is a significant fraction of c, are all objects ahead of me in my path contracted in the direction of my travel for an infinite distance? In other words, are planets and stars from right in front of me to the edge of the known universe contracted as I move towards them? What about once I'm past them? Do they remained contracted until I slow down? Does this contraction decrease if an object is not directly in front of me, but off to the side a bit? As always, thank you.
