Optical effects of special relativity

  1. Oct 9, 2008 #1

    I has a question about Optical effects of special relativity. I recently watching a video about this in You Tube, my question is: Ever wonder what the world would look like as a photon?

    It is not clear what do you mean by"the world would look like a photon". Do you think "would it look like on a snapshot"? If yes I could provide links.
