Hello, I'm new, and I have a problem I can't seem to imagine to solve. Any help?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

You have 5 light beams, moving from the same line, 1m apart from eachother, all moving to the same target exactly 10 light seconds away. If each light beam sees the others move at light speed, will each light beam see the others hit first? Do they all hit first?

Simplified: What will each light beam see? What will an outside observer see?

Kinda confusing...
