Description:

Video/audio clips of the doppler effect from three reference frames; a stationary observer (person 1), the person generating the sound (person 2) and a person traveling in the oposite direction (person 3).  A car horn is blown (person 2) while driving past a person (person 1). Another car (person 3) passes the first car in the opposite direction. If you listen carefully, you can even tell the differences in pitch between the beginning pitches of person 1 and person 3.
