A way of looking at the topics of stellar and planetary aberration is suggested that enables them to be viewed as closely related?both being conceived as dependent on source-detector relative velocity. We show that the long-range limiting case, stellar aberration, has certain uniquely subtle aspects, as well as some hypothesized characteristics that lend themselves to empirical testing.
