A NEW optic illusion has gone viral on social media as people try to figure out if the circles are moving or staying in one place.
The illusion works by constantly changing colors and the direction of the arrows to keep you wondering.

When staring at the two circles, it seems like they are moving up and down, side to side, and even getting thinner and thicker.
However, what could be confusing people on social media is the fact that the circles are changing colors constantly.
This creates an illusion that they are moving on their own. But, they aren’t.
The constant video loop of the colors going around the circle could also be very deceiving.
After the creator posted his work on social media, many commented with conflicting opinions.
One person wrote: “I hid the arrows and the circles are still moving.”

A second one claimed: “They are not moving it’s not the arrows that caused the illusion it’s actually the colors and if you take a screenshot of the circles at any given point you’ll see they don’t actually move except in circles.”
However, a third person commented the colors aren’t what’s causing the illusion because it still happens when changed to black and white.
And a fourth thought they had cracked it: “oh I see what’s going on. The circles aren’t actually remaining circles, but flattening into ellipses along the horizontal and vertical axes creating the illusion of movement along those axes.”
A fifth also added: “The outer rim changes! The way the gradient moves in the outer rings creates the illusion of moving or shrinking.”
What do you think? Are the circles moving or staying put?
