A previously advanced hypothesis of radiation convection by the absorber, deduced from the so-called neo-Hertzian electomagnetism, is tested for its ability to account for the facts of stellar aberration. The test is passed at first order. Satellite astronomy may in the future offer some hope of observationally distinguishing this theory from special relativity.
