## Main Question or Discussion Point

Ok, new to the board, but I have a question...

Given that large amounts of mass can significantly alter the trajectory of light (e.g. gravitational lenses), I take this to mean that 'space' itself is being warped, and hence the photon/wave's trajectory, so does the warping of space also affect the location of magnetic fields in space?

for instance, if I have large mass sitting an arbitrary distance from a magnet of arbitrary size and strength, what will happen to the magnetic field of the magnet if that mass were to suddenly disappear? Would the field elongate or change shape in any way?

Or are the locations/geometries of magnetic fields independent of gravitational warping of space?

I just figure that since light/matter is influenced by gravity, that magnetic fields might be as well...

Thanks in advance.
