Properties of Light - 1

I like to see Physics in everyday life. Physics is not a matter of book only, it brings you closer to the Nature.

Here is a photo I took in the Diwali celebrations:

 


Do you see two reflections!? Can you justify why it happens ?

The theme this week and next is Properties of Light. Send in your querries on this topic, and I will do my best to Answer them!

Well, for those who know properties of light, they will say, its simple, there are two sides of the glass, and the light from the lamp gets reflected twice to the camera, once while entering and once while leaving.
though its absolutely correct, let me say that its not obvious! This is an interesting property of light, that it is reflected from any boundary between two media, wheather its travelling from denser to rarer or vice versa.
