    I'm reading up on LaFreniere's doppler wave electron, which presents the electron as two opposite 180-degree Airy disks that produce a spherical standing wave system. When the electron moves, the Doppler effect dictates that the electrons phase varies along the displacement axis, but only when viewed from an observer at rest, because the Doppler effect is unnoticable inside the same frame of reference. Im a bit confused about this part. If the phase wave is retarded forward, wouldn't the varying distance to the center be noticable from any frame of reference, or am I thinking about this the wrong way? Perhaps its a mathematical concept more than a physical one?

    My information is coming from here:

    Thanks in advance =)
