Here is a picture of my power adapter. You can see in has one green LED lit when charging.
Now here is a picture of my mirror with beveled edges. When I view the power adapter in the mirror, I see three (3) projections of the LED: the original, plus two "ghost" LEDs (one on either side).
Can someone explain how the mirror's bevels are able to cause these triplicate projections? And why does it only appear to affect the LED (except near the edges)? If the mirror had a different bevel pattern (for example, in the following image), would it affect the number of "ghost" projections?
UPDATE: For what it's worth, I took another picture late at night, with the camera lens as close to the mirror as possible to maximize the angle of reflection. Doing this showed me 6 (!) ghost projections, which is (mostly) in line with @Agent_L's answer (
There are actually many more "after", but as every next one is, let's say, 90% dimmer than the previous, only the first is noticeable.). Apologies for the poor image quality.
