Is it possible that a given star or galaxy can been seen in more than location in the sky given the affects that gravity has on light?

Example; Two stars are viewed in the night sky. One is known be 5 light years away, the other 220 light years. But they are in fact the same star. the light from the latter just takes a different route to the earth via different galaxies and gravity fields.
