Relativity and shape of objects

A triangular shape spacecraft flies by an observer at 0.95c. When the ship is measured
by an observer at rest with respect to the ship, the distances x and y are found to be 50m and 25m respectively. What is the shape of the ship as seen by an observer who sees the ship in motion along the direction shown in figure?
