You cannot travel at the speed of light.
If you were moving at the speed of light and looked behind you a few things could possibly happen. 1st after the flash of light that was traveling with you showing what was behind you all you would see is black, because no new light would reach your eyes 2nd you might see tiny pixles of colered light in a background of light, because light on a diagonal path comapaired to your would intercept your eyes at a certain point in time. I have heard some people say that you would see afrozen frame but I think after the light hits your eyes the energy in it is used.
A more interesting question may be what would happen if you went a little faster and looked ahead what would it look like as you cought up with light that was already moving?!  AlternateMost people know that accelerating to light speed is not possible, but we can consider the question as speculation, or as a kind of 'thought experiment' in order to illustrate some of the relativistic effects of travel at or near c. Have you ever seen a science fiction program/movie where the storytellers wanted you to get that time has stopped for a few people in the scene? People will be projected as if they are frozen in time; as if they are fixed in a kind of time-dependent plexi-glass. This isn't precisely what would happen to you if you accelerate to light speed (which is actually impossible) but it is reasonably close to what happens. [To observers on earth, you would look more like an infinitely thin pancake. Honest.] At the speed of light, all time would completely stop for you. It would not be possible for you to turn, or 'look', or 'do' anything at all. If you were a photon traveling through space toward earth for 10 million earth years, when you arrived it would seem to you that the trip was instantaneous.

You would"NT see anything as you will close your eyes when travelling at such a speed.

If you were moving at the speed of light would you have a shadow?

Yes.. If I saw you move past me at the speed of light, and at the same time, you were measuring the speed of light with instruments that you were carrying, you would measure

When travelling at speed of light do you see your body while moving or does it fall behind as you are faster than the light you are seeing with your eyes?

According to our understanding of physics (which is always susceptible to modification in the light of new facts), no physical object can ever travel AT the speed of light. As

Why can't we see the speed of light?

Because we can't perceive the length of time that light takes tocover any distance that we can watch. Example: Let's say that we can tell the difference between two things

Is it possible to see light move with a high speed camera?

Scientists have created a camera that has the ability to take 10 12 (That is 1 with 12 zeros) FPS. And with a short enough pulse from a laser, they have the ability to watch

What would you see if there was a live video feed from a train going almost the speed of light '?

You would see the track, the trees on either side of the track, the buildings and people along the route, moving past the train, just as you see them when you're a passeng

Are you seeing at the speed of light?

Actually no. Light may travel to you at the speed of light but once it strikes your retina the process of seeing slows all the way down to bio-electrics which is a poor conten

How would moving at light speed affect a watch?

Just like everything else, that would depend on who is looking at the watch, and how the observer is moving relative to it. To the person wearing the watch, it would appea

What would you see if you were on a train travelling at 2 3rds the speed of light and looked out the window whilst a train travelling at the same speed was going in the opposite direction?

You would see the other traing going by you at nearly the speed oflight. This may seem counter-intuitive, but that's what happens.The speed of light is an immutable constant t
