It refers to when an object projects several images all at the same time.
but depending on which angle you look at it from and how it catches the light, it can look very different.
I'm starting to fear the word only exists in my mind. And, as I can't think what it actually is, therefore it doesn't exist at all...
I'm trying to decide if it's that. If not, that'll do!
Or maybe not.
It's more likely to be wordy word though
It might have something to do with when the light splits off in different directions. Is that diffracting?
Diffraction is when waves (light, sound, water) spread out when passing through a gap.
Although I wanted the adjective so it's actually refractive!
