An event occured at point A (x,y,z,t) = (0,0,0,0) and Point B (-500*10^3,0,0,0) simultaneously on earth. An airplane flies along the line (in space) connecting A and B with velocity 12/13v. The airplane is between B and S and is moving towards S. Which event occured first. How much earlier did it occur. Okay. I get that event B occured first with by 0.01733 seconds. This defies all of my intuition because A and the plane are moving closer togethor while B and the plane are moving farther apart. I would think that this means the plane would perceive event A as "closer" than it really is and event B "farther" than it really is. Is my intuition that wrong?
