the fact that the light slows down can be visualized by using the gravity well visualization (if u don`t know how to do this, i will explain if u ask :-P). the light slows down because it cannot climb the walls of the gravity well, but are the slope of the gravity well becomes less extreme, the light speeds up to c. that is why the object appears to slow down. if you watch the star go i n, it will look like it`s moving slower and slower, and look redder and redder in the electromagnetic spectrum, until it eventually disappears. i hope i helped, if u have any questions, just ask
