Gravity waves propagation in 3D Space

  1. Nov 12, 2011 #1
    Im a visual person, and I have a strong interest in Physics for some reason too.

    Im trying to picture how Gravitational waves would look not in Spacetime but in normal space.

    Are they like concentric rings surrounding the source?
    And how do they differ in shape when there are 2, 3 or more objects orbiting one another?

    Im working on the presumption that every object in space is actually orbiting another object and therefore every object should propagate these waves.

    Does anyone have a link to how say a binary star wave would propagate not in spacetime but in normal space please?
