To does an object seem greater in length, an observer moving with the object or an observer moving relative to the object? Which observer measures the objects proper length?

To determine

The condition when an object seem greater in length, an observer moving with the object or an observer moving relative to the object. The observer measures the object's proper length.

Explanation

Introduction:

When an object is at rest then the distance calculated between the two-point relative to the rest object is proper length.

The distance short between the relative motion of the observer frame and the object moving is length contradiction.

When an observer moves with the object then the length of the object is greater as the frame of the motion is same for the observer see both objects...
