I have my answer of the doppler shifting as 2.5 meaning redshift,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

but what does this mean, 2.5 what? if its 2.5 'units' then how can I work out the speed of the object going from my Stationary position?

it's all nice knowing for example my object could be going at 0.1m under the speed of light but i want to know if it's possible to work out the speed of the object using observable red shift?

anyone know?

Thanks =)
