    the 2 ghosts would be a good visual for a hyperbola; but if your going for an exacting replica....its a long shot :)

    alright but there is a possibiliy she would count it as a hyberbola and not twp parabolas? im not missing a key point to the definition of a hyperbola?

    graphically; a hyperbola is defined according to the properties of it 2 focus points- cant recall the eact definition - but I know it differs in respect to a parabolas definition. But in essense, the hyperbola looks like 2 parabolas head to head.. look up on google the definition of hyperbola to be sure :)
