Description: The hypothetical ‚EúDimming Effect‚EĚ describes the change of the number of photons arriving from a moving light source per unit of time. In non-relativistic systems, the ‚EúDimming effect‚EĚ may occur due to the growing distance of light sources moving away from the receiver. This means that due to the growing distance, the photons continuously require more time to reach the receiver, which reduces the number of received photons per time unit compared to the number of emitted photons.

Understandably, the proposed ‚EúDimming effect‚EĚ must be tested (confirmed or rejected) through observations. a. Article provides the formula for the calculation of ‚EúDimming effect‚EĚ values using the redshift parameter Z used in astronomy. b. The ‚EúDimming effect‚EĚ can possibly be detected utilizing the orbital movement of the Earth around the Sun. In accordance to ‚EúDimming effect‚EĚ, observers on Earth will view 1.0001 more photons per time unit emitted by stars located near the ecliptic plane in the direction of the Earth orbiting the Sun. And, in contrast, observers will view only 0.9999 photons per time unit emitted by stars located near the ecliptic plane in the direction opposite to the Earth orbiting the Sun. These changes in brightness take place for all stars near the ecliptic in the direction of the Earth‚Eôs orbit around the Sun and in the opposite direction. c. The ‚EúDimming effect‚EĚ can possibly be detected in a physics laboratory using a moving light source (or mirror) and photon counters located in the direction of travel and in the opposite direction. e. If confirmed, ‚EúDimming effect‚EĚ would allow astronomers to adjust values of "Standard Candles" used in astronomy. This, in turn, can correct cosmological models based on "Standard Candles" and/or reveal and support new models. If it is proved that the ‚EúDimming effect‚EĚ does not exist, it will mean that the number of photons arriving per unit of time does not depend on the speed of the light sou...
