Using the Meissner effect, where a superconductor, having no electrical resistance, is suspended when applied, under the correct conditions, the repulsive force of the magnet.
Newton's third law states a force will have an equal, but opposite reaction, yet I don't see any forces directly acting on a magnet when levitating the superconductor.
Is there an opposing, opposite force during this interaction?

"The magnet is presumably pushed down with the same force that it is pushing the superconductor up = the weight of the superconductor?", (Martin Beckett)
By Newton's 3rd Law this should be, but is it that emitting magnetic currents generates a downward force, or that the repulsive forces somehow create an equal force on the magnet, etc.? I'm unaware of any forces or processes within this process that would produce an opposing force. So generally this is the idea was was hoping you could elaborate on.
