I ( Swaminathan) started studying theory of relativity. I need some help in understanding the following:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Special relativity says that what looks like time to one observer(in a moving frame) looks like space to another observer(in a stationary frame).

I assume that Two events are happening. An observer views these two events happening at same space but at different times. Another observer views these two events happening at same time but at different space.

Is my assumption is correct. If so, can someone give real world example for the above situation. I searched for examples in text books and it is not available.
