Is it possible for some gamma rays to be low energy waves from something moving toward us while we move toward them?

What level of light would it become if two objects going near the speed of light traveling toward each other with a light?

Theoretically, sure.

Depends on the relative speed, check the formulas for the doppler effect.

Studied this for a year and finally figured out why there were circles coming out of the damn stars instead of wavy lines lol. I kinda have two theories, not sure which is correct.

I. It's not an ACTUAL gamma-ray, it is simply recorded at the FREQUENCY of it because we are moving toward it. I understand that when something is moving toward us the waves coming out of it toward us are compressed, which increases the frequency. But us moving toward it only red-lines or blue-lines it. I hope theory 1 makes some sense to you guys
.

II. Yeah. Basically, but it would have to be moving really really fast toward us.

It is an ACTUAL gamma ray for the person moving fast enough towards it. Since according to relativity theory there is no absolute reference frame, you can't say absolutely whether it is a gamma ray or radio wave, it depends on the observer.
