Space - Redshift


As an object moves away from an observer the wavelength of the light appears to become stretched. Two measurements of the light will show a slight shift to the red end of the electromagnetic spectrum from the first to the second. The amount of shift will indicate the speed at which the object and observer are moving apart.
