# Does a rest charge on the surface of the earth emit radiation [duplicate]

Suppose we have an observer $$O$$ in free fall and electric charge $$e$$ on the surface of the earth. As $$O$$ is in inertial frame, Maxwell's equations are valid for $$O$$. However, according to general relativity the electric charge $$e$$ is accelerated. Does the observer $$O$$ see radiation emitted by the charge $$e$$? Has any experience been made?

• And where do you get the idea the observer would not "see radiation"? Nov 12 '20 at 20:28
• Has this experience been made? Nov 12 '20 at 20:47
• I will edit the question Nov 12 '20 at 22:01
• After looking through some papers I now believe no observer will see radiation at rest in a gravitational field. Nov 14 '20 at 0:40
• what papers did you look? Nov 14 '20 at 12:31
