1307.7300 (Robert A. Woodruff)

Aberration of starlight experiment    [PDF]

Robert A. Woodruff
We propose an experiment using a conventional optical telescope to determine whether aberration of starlight results from special relativistic effects external to a measurement sensor or from optical effects within a sensor. The proposed measurements would discriminate between the two starlight aberration models in an Earth-based experiment. In addition, the measurements would yield an independent experimental test of relativistic time dilation.
