Expert Answer:

The nature of path will still be another parabola.
If the observer is moving then we have to subtract the coordinates of the observer from the measured coordinates of the observed object. 
Since trajectory in projectile motion is a parabola, hence we might need to just subtract one parabola from another which still leave another parabola.
