**Abstract:**

In this paper the Lorentz transformations are examined in four different ways: (1) from: a mathematical standpoint; (2) for implied consequences derived out of them in relation to De Fresnel's aether drag formula; (3) for their predictions of certain astronomical events compared to the actual occurrence of the associated happenings; and again (4) in relation to the invariance of Maxwell's equations of electromagnetism.
