Physics

You push an air-hockey puck along a surface with negligible friction while riding in a truck as it moves at a constant velocity in Earth's frame of reference. What do you observe? Why?

I'm tempted to say that the puck moves forward because that's all I can think of, but I really don't think that's right; there should be more to it... :(
