Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A gravitational mirage is the visual impression caused by a so-called gravitational lens in space, which may include multiple images, rings, etc. of background light sources. This is analogous to the familiar mirage which can frequently be observed where the air temperature varies strongly with height over the ground (or sea). The rapidly changing refractive index produces inverted images "floating" in the air.
