A one-dimensional Minkowski diagram (rest frame) with sketched equilocal events for the rest frame. The equilocal events are always parallel to the time axis of the rest frame:

• $$\class{blue}{E_1}$$, $$\class{blue}{E_2}$$ und $$\class{blue}{E_3}$$ happen at the location $$\class{blue}{x_1}$$ in the rest frame.
• $$\class{red}{E_0}$$ and $$\class{red}{E_4}$$ happen at a different location $$\class{red}{x_2}$$ in the rest frame.
