If the mass of a stellar object can be considered to be concentrated at its center then two objects approaching the mass and moving on parallel courses will move toward each other. Is this a legitimate example of a curved metric? If so how much of GR could be explained by expansion of this effect to multi body systems and where would it fail? I'm pretty sure this is a stupid question but I would really appreciate it if someone would lower themselves to my level. Thanks in advance.
