Illusory rotation is rahter weak in each image.

(I cannot explain why this movie does not show as much rotating appearance as the one shown above)

"A pair of globular clusters"

When observers see a gobular cluster and approach the image, the other one appears to move away. For those who wear glasses, try to move them.

I think this effect might be the same as the drifting background illusion proposed by Masaharu Kato in 2007.

"Expansion of shells"

Shells appear to expansion when the background get white.
