We study the kinematical problem of observation of motion of objects that move at velocities comparable to the velocity of signals which are used to determine the velocity and distance of the objects. The main purpose of this work is to demonstrate the importance of time delay between the emission of signals and their reception at the observation point. The simplest cases are considered, i.e., rectilinear motion and assuming the observational point at the path of the moving object. Sound and light signals are considered to transmit the information on the motion. The results relating to the motion at constant velocity and for the acceleration due to a constant force are presented.
