# Will relative velocity of light exceed $c$? [duplicate]

Suppose I'm standing a few light minutes away from a light emitting object, as soon as the light is turned on, I project myself towards the object with some speed. Will the relative velocity of my speed and $c$ add up to give a velocity higher than speed of light?

• No that won't happen. See this: math.ucr.edu/home/baez/physics/Relativity/SpeedOfLight/… – hxri Mar 8 '16 at 17:01
• Irrespective of the relative velocity between you and the light source, you will always measure light (in a vacuum) to travel at $c$. – lemon Mar 8 '16 at 17:02
