Abstract: E. Cartan's method of moving frames is applied to 3dimensional manifolds M which are CRembedded in 5dimensional real hyperquadrics Q in order to classify M up to CR symmetries of Q given by the action of one of the Lie groups SU(3,1) or SU(2,2). In the latter case, the CR structure of M derives from a shearfree null geodesic congruence on Minkowski spacetime, and the relationship to relativity is discussed. In both cases, we compute which homogeneous CR 3folds appear in Q.
