Caption: Animation of gravitational lensing over a galaxy. Gravitational lensing occurs when a massive object lies between Earth and a much more distant object. The gravitational field of the middle object (the lens) bends the path of light from the more distant object, resulting in an observer seeing distorted images, multiple images or, in the case of a perfect alignment, a ring (called an Einstein ring).
