The Spinning Silhouette Optical Illusion

Posted on September 23, 2007. Filed under: Illusions |

This is a very bizarre optical illusion. At first glance the spinning lady appears to be circling in one direction (say clockwise for some and anti-clockwise for others). But if you look long enough she will appear to change direction and start spinning the opposite direction.

How long did it take for you before you can make it switch direction? Comments please.

Interesting.. I had 2 windows open and they were spinning in opposite directions..

It is a good example.
I noticed changing direction is varying between 2 to 6 circles.
There are many such cases of illusions and it will be nice to see them and some card tricks!
