... are equivalent the center of the jet is not "aware" of the jet edge, and due to relativistic beaming we only see a small fraction of the jet ... Second, relativistic beaming effects subside, and once Earth observers see the entire jet the widening of the relativistic beam is no longer compensated by the fact that we see ...
