Abstract

We present an exhaustive discussion of the embedding diagrams for the optical geometry of the Reissner-Nordström solutions. Whereas in the black hole sector there are no qualitative differences with respect to the Schwarzschild case, the diagrams are considerably different if naked singularities are present. Our treatment is sufficiently general that it can be applied also to any other static spherically symmetric spacetime.
