An application of the Mathematical Physics of Gauss?s Law for gravity along with intense observational evidence, reveal that solar lensing does not occur in the empty vacuum space slightly above the plasma rim of the sun. The thin plasma atmosphere of the sun represents a clear example of an indirect interaction involving an interfering plasma medium between the gravitational field of the sun and the rays of light from the stars. There is convincing observational evidence that a direct interaction between light and gravitation in the empty vacuum space above the solar rim simply does not occur. Historically, all evidence of light bending has been observed predominantly near the thin plasma rim of the sun; not in the empty vacuum space far above the thin plasma rim. An application of Gauss' law clearly shows that, if the light bending rule of General Relativity were valid, then a light bending effect due to the gravitational field of the sun should be easily detectable with current technical mean in Astrophysics at various analytical Gaussian spherical surfaces of solar radii, namely, 2R, 3R, 4R, 5R, ..., respectively, where R is one solar radius. An effect of at least one half, one third, one forth, one fifth, etc., respectively, of the observed light bending noted at the solar rim within currently technical means should be easily observable effects. This has not been the case. We note that a gravitational bending effect on the rays of starlight is yet to be observed by modern astronomical means at these distances just slightly above the plasma rim of the sun; a clear violation of the light bending rule of General Relativity. Moreover, the events taking place at the center of our galaxy under intense observations by the astrophysicists since 1992, present convincing evidence that a direct interaction between light and gravitation simply does not take place. The highly studied region, known as Sagittarius A*, is thought to contain a super massive object or a black hole, a most likely candidate for gravitational lensing. The past two decades of intense observation in this region have revealed not a shred of evidence for gravitational lensing. The evidence is clearly revealed in the time resolved images of the rapidly moving stellar objects orbiting about Sagittarius A*.

DETAILS and BACKGROUND
There's not a shred of evidence for a direct interaction between light and gravity in the empty vacuum space just above the plasma rim of the sun. Recent findings in observational Astrophysics convincingly show that the important fundamentals of Mathematical Physics and astrophysical observations have been incorrectly applied to the so-called gravitational lenses. Since the discovery of solar light bending, researchers have always assumed that gravitational lenses are due to a direct interaction between light and gravity. Historically, astronomers have noted that light rays from stars that pass near the plasma rim of the sun appear to deviate from their linear trajectories. The astronomical observations reveal that the effects of the gravitational field of the sun on the rays of light from the stars have been due to an indirect interaction between light and gravity and not due to direct interaction. An application of Gauss' law that encloses the gravitating mass of the sun inside of an analytical Gaussian sphere shows that a direct interaction between the gravitational field of the sun and the rays of light from the stars in empty vacuum space just slightly above the solar plasma rim does not take place.
