I happen to stumble upon this intriguing animation of a Tachyon, and immediately started to think about the same phenomenon, but with sound waves. I imagined a bandwagon
B moving at a constant supersonic speed, and passing an stationary observer
<--- weeeeee . . O B
My understanding is, until
O would here nothing. Then,
O would hear two bandwagons receding from her, after the sonic boom. One receding to the left, where the bandwagon has gone, and obviously redshifted. And one to the right, blueshifted. The sound to the right will also be heard as a receding bandwagon, because farther the bandwagon was, later the sound waves would arrive at
Is my understanding of this phenomenon correct? And do we have any real world examples of this?
