Experiments On Red Shift From Orbit On Our Sun

Hi all,

I am looking for any information confirming that any experiments have been done with the red shift effect in relation to our sun.

Such as a shuttle in orbit testing for the red shift as it orbits first towards the sun and then away from the sun. Since most orbits are at about 17,000 kph + this should be a great way to confirm again how the red shift works. I would even accept experiments done from the Earth's surface at dawn and dusk, since the observer would be moving at about 300 kph to and from the sun at these times.

Thanks for any help
