Can anyone answer this question? What you would see while watching a stationary clock that you are moving directly away from at a constant relativistic velocity? Yes, any practical clock would immediately shrink to a tiny point an instant after you passed it. So, either assume a really huge clock (or alternatively a fast-rotating planet that you could watch while moving along the line defined by its poles). I'm really only interested in a precise formulation of the time that the clock's hands would read to you the observer as you move. As you move away from it (or towards it for that matter), the clock should show a component of slowing due to a permanent time loss due to relativistic effects. It should also show a recoverable component of slowing while moving away (that you could regain as an apparent quickening while moving back towards it) due simply to your growing or shrinking distance from it and regardless of your speed.
