This unique apparatus consists of two specially designed parabolic mirrors positioned one above the other with the concave reflecting sides facing

inwards. Light from an object placed at the center of the
bottom mirror is reflected by both mirrors to form a real,
three-dimensional image at the center of the top mirror. The illusion is so good that many observers try to grasp the image. The diameter is 22.5 cm.
