Scattering of electromagnetic waves by arbitrary objects moving in free space is discussed. The objects move at constant velocities. The formalism is relativistically exact and applies to arbitrary distances from the scatterer. The results are recast in terms of the dominant (far-field) frequency; this is useful for low velocities and near-field frequencies. Numerical results are given for scattering by two-dimensional moving monopoles and dipoles.
