  • if you hold a mirror parallel to another mirror, nothing would happen but if you keep an object between then, then you would have infinite number of images

  • In theory the reflections should grow less and less clear. In reality, nothing will happen in a reasonable amount of time. Given infinity though they would eventually reach a point where they reflect next to nothing.

    • What do you mean by reaching "a point where they reflect next to nothing"?

      Do you mean that the light would stop being reflected or that the images would become too small to be reflected?

    • Technically it would shrink as it approaches infinity so it would never be nothing. Just insignificant.
