Headlight effect; light aberration; Doppler beaming; ballistic propagation of light; searchlight effect; the Galilean addition of velocities; emission theories of light.
In the current investigation, the equations for calculating the headlight effect and light aberration, based upon the assumption of ballistic and relative speeds of light, have been derived. And the main characteristics of shifted electromagnetic radiation, due to these two optical effects, within the subluminal, near superluminal, and far superluminal regions, are analyzed and discussed in detail.
