The study of shadow continues to be a major source of insight into compact astrophysical objects. Depending on the nature of compact objects and due to the strong gravitational lensing effect that casts a shadow on the bright background. We consider the Kerr-like wormholes spacetime \cite{Bueno:2017hyj} which is a modification of Kerr black holes that turns into the wormholes for nonzero values of deformation parameter $\lambda^2$. The results suggest that the Kerr spacetime can reproduce far…

Throat effects on shadows of Kerr-like wormholes
We revisit to investigate shadows cast by Kerr-like wormholes. The boundary of the shadow is determined by unstable circular photon orbits. We find that, in certain parameter regions, the orbit is
Double shadows of reflection-asymmetric wormholes supported by positive energy thin-shells
We consider reflection-asymmetric thin-shell wormholes within Palatini f(R) gravity using a matching procedure of two patches of electrovacuum space-times at a hypersurface (the shell) via suitable
Reflection-asymmetric wormholes and their double shadows
We discuss construction and observational properties of wormholes obtained by connecting two Reissner-Nordstrom spacetimes with distinct mass and charge parameters. These objects are spherically
Shadow cast by a rotating black hole with anisotropic matter
We obtain the shadow cast induced by the rotating black hole with an anisotropic matter. A Killing tensor representing the hidden symmetry is derived explicitly. The existence of separability

This paper studies the correspondence between the real part of quasinormal modes (QNMs) and the shadow radius in a wormhole spacetime and calculates the typical shadow radius of the rotating wormhole when viewed from the equatorial plane.
Thin accretion disk in the Simpson-Visser black-bounce and wormhole spacetimes
We compare the optical appearance of a thin accretion disk in the Simpson-Visser spacetime to the Schwarzschild black hole case in this paper. We calculate and illustrate the red-shift and observed
Quasinormal modes of black holes surrounded by dark matter and their connection with the shadow radius
The purpose of this article is twofold. First, we highlight a simple connection between the real part of quasinormal modes (QNMs) in the eikonal limit and the shadow radius of black holes (BHs) and
Determining the Topology and Deflection Angle of Ringholes via Gauss-Bonnet Theorem
In this letter, we use a recent wormhole solution known as a ringhole [Gonzalez-Diaz, Phys.\ Rev.\ D {\bf 54}, 6122, 1996] to determine the surface topology and the deflection angle of light in the


Wormhole Shadows
We propose a new method of detecting Ellis wormholes by use of the images of wormholes surrounded by optically thin dust. First, we derive steady solutions of dust and more general medium surrounding
Shadows of rotating wormholes
The results obtained here indicate that, through the observations of their shadows, the wormholes which are considered in this work and have reasonable spin can be distinguished from a black hole.
Shadows of Kerr Black Holes with Scalar Hair.
Using backwards ray tracing, we study the shadows of Kerr black holes with scalar hair (KBHSH). KBHSH interpolate continuously between Kerr BHs and boson stars (BSs), so we start by investigating the
Rotating black hole shadow in Rastall theory
Due to gravitational lensing effect, a black hole casts a shadow larger than its horizon over a bright background and the shape and size can be calculated. We discuss rotating black holes surrounded
Shadows of Kerr-like black holes in a modified gravity theory
In this paper, the shadows cast by non-rotating and rotating modified gravity black holes are investigated. In addition to the black hole spin parameter $a$ and the inclination angle $\theta$ of
Echoes of Kerr-like wormholes
Structure at the horizon scale of black holes would give rise to echoes of the gravitational wave signal associated with the post-merger ringdown phase in binary coalescences. We study the waveform
Measuring the Kerr spin parameter of regular black holes from their shadow
In a previous paper, one of us has showed that, at least in some cases, the Kerr-nature of astrophysical black hole candidates is extremely difficult to test and current techniques, even in presence
Observing the shadow of Einstein-Maxwell-Dilaton-Axion black hole
In this paper, the shadows cast by Einstein-Maxwell-Dilaton-Axion black hole and naked singularity are studied. The shadow of a rotating black hole is found to be a dark zone covered by a deformed
Very long baseline interferometric observations have resolved structure on scales of only a few Schwarzschild radii around the supermassive black holes at the centers of our Galaxy and M87. In the
