Assuming that the source of the dipole radiation moves with v=365[+ or -]18 km/sec away from the observer and the Earth (the monopole radiation source), we obtain
due to the Doppler effect, the dipole radiation temperature T (measured by the 1st derivative of the monopole) should be 0.
With v=365 km/sec we obtain the relativistic lowering of the observed temperature of the dipole radiation due to the Special Relativity effect
