As I understand it, Lorentz Contraction states an object "contracts" relative to it's velocity to an observer. So at a high velocity of speed, the meter stick (carried by the object moving relative to the observer) appears to contract (to the observer) and the observer measures less distance traveled than the object. This seems to counter time dilation. If the object is measuring a larger distance traveled from A to B it would seem the object would would measure an increase in observed time, not a decrease. If object is moving at .99C and it contracts the measured distance from A to B would increase for it, which would logically say would take more time. How am I misinterpreting this? I know the object experiences less time but a greater distance? Huh? Cheers!
