Gravitational vectors point toward the 'center of gravity' of the 'gravity generating mass'. The force vector acting on a body under acceleration points in the direction opposite to that of the acceleration vector. Thus the resultant gravitational vectors at all points in a region would converge on the center of gravity of the region. The force vectors at all points in an accelerating region would be parallel and opposite to the acceleration vector.
