Rindler Horizon

  1. Aug 25, 2010 #1
    I have been reading discussions where the Rindler horizon is compared to the event horizon of a black hole.
    In the case of a black hole the visual conception seems fairly obvious , being , well black,
    .But I have searched for a direct description of the Rindler horizon without finding a visual . I .e. WHat would we see looking back in a Born rigid ship???
    A black area or an area of filtered light which is also redshifted???

    Likewise, what would be the effect viewing the receding ship from the outside???

    Also I have read that objects approaching either a black hole or the R horizon would lose coordinate speed at a greater rate with greater initial velocity. ANy light on this would be great.
    Thanks
