The light will be compressed to the point where you cannot see it.
If you've ever watched racing something odd happens with the sound...it changes as the cars go past. That's because the sound waves are travelling at a different rate in relation to the car. The sound is compressed as the car approaches, but spreads back out as the car passes.
That is only true of compression waves passing through a media.
Light works on the same basic principle.
Dexters explanation is good, and will work past this point.
The speed of sound changes depending on conditions. It is possible that the speed of light changes as well.
