If a viewer faces a concave spherical mirror from a position well beyond the center of curvature, and if an object of moderate size is placed close to the reflecting surface, the viewer will see its image behind the mirror, upright and magnified. As the object is drawn away from the reflecting surface toward the viewpoint, its image becomes progressively larger as it recedes farther and farther behind the surface until a point is reached at which the image becomes blurry and incoherent.
