: pmb "However when measured locally it's always "c" (as measured in an inertial frame). Near the Sun the speed of light is given by c' = (1 - 2GM/r) (G=c=1)"

: Not exactly, the coordinate speed of radial : moving light is c' = (1 - 2GM/rc2)c. Light moving perpendicular to the displacement to the sun moves at a coordinate speed of c' = (1 - 2GM/rc2)1/2c. The coordinate speed not only depends on location, but also on direction.

Darn! Yes. Asouletey yes. Sheesh. I had just mentioned that yesterday too to someone else. Oy!
