Caption: Waves in a water-filled wave tank. This image was made by shining light through the tank, the waves casting shadows beneath. Where the waves are strongest, they refract more light and appear bright. This circular pattern of ripples is formed by a single object oscillating into the water, creating a pattern of concentric circular waves.
