Does the effect of Gravity get bent like light around another gravitational source? If the object is close enough to the Earth does the Earth's gravitational force bent the Moon's or even the Sun's gravitational effect on that object before that "line of sight" event occurs. As Einstein's General Relativity was proven in 1919 with an solar eclipse of the Sun, light bents with a gravitational source why can't gravity. Will a Satellite around Earth in Low Earth Orbit feel the Gravitational pull before passing from the protection of the Earth's Umbria or will it feel nothing until the Sun is directly in front of it? If so is there any mathematical evaluation of this occurrance?
