The electron moves from energy level 2 to energy level 3. Why does the effect only detect radial velocity? The wavelengths can't be shifted to shorter or longer wavelengths if objects are moving in a line of sight.

### What can you measure but not seen?

TIME is what we can measure in Years, Months, Days, Hours, Minutes and Seconds but we cannot see. In respect to this, what does not get measured does not get done?

Physical quantities are all those quantities which are physically present and they can be measured. These are divided into two main categories as follows. Non-physical quantities are those quantities which cannot seen neither can they be measured.

Billions of years ago, Venus had a moon that formed the same way Earth's did. Our Moon is still slowly moving away from Earth, due to tidal interactions, but the satellite slowly spiraled away from the planet.

Evenings. Venus will be in the morning sky on February 13. During late January and early February, Venus will look like a crescent in telescopes and binoculars.

### In respect to this, does there exist a non-measurable set?

There exist a set B?R such that B and R?B intersect every uncountable closed set. Any such set (a Bernstein set) is non-measurable (and does not have the Baire property). In particular, any set of positive exterior measure contains a non-measurable set.
