The setup: You're in a spaceship rocketing around the earth, never breaking orbit. You have a video recorder constantly pointing inward toward the earth, capturing the events. You then begin accelerating to 99% the speed of light. After a few hours at this speed you decelerate to 1% c.

Shouldn't i see the earth rapidly aging due to the effects of time dilation? I tried to get a solid answer from my physics teacher, but I'm not certain i adequately explained the perameters of the thought-experiment and never received a satisfying answer.
