This thread is a continuation of the thread I linked to in the OP.

I have considered taking photos, but to succeed I have to use an extreme wide angle lens, and at these focal lengths we're talking about a fisheye lens.

Even after taking a usable photo, it has to be magnified to be larger than an ordinary computer screen.
Then it must be viewed at very short distance, maybe 0.1-0.2 meters.
I doubt this will help explaining the phenomenon. For a start, I direct you to the image in post #5 of that thread. I willl also add two other pictures soon.
